31 DAYS OF POETRY- DAY 10- MOTHER EARTH- by Doyin Olaleye

Mother earth; 
mourn 
Humanity; 
weep 
Divinity; 
Grieve 
For your inhabitants have gone berserk 
Normalcy has gone haywire 
Insurgency eats deep like disease 
Rod of iniquity stirs nature's wrath 
On the streets, human flesh are roasted whole 
Can't you perceive, it sizzles like fat 
Her beloved butchered 
Her esteemed murdered 
Massacred without crime 
Yet, citizens looked once 
Oblivion to what's amiss 
For the love of life 
Who will bell the cat 
Can you cure this disease? 
Will you heal mother earth? 
Is humanity ever going to be restored? 
Unto normalcy 
Unto dignity 
Unto her glory
