Save The Girls

abubakar

I am generally a forgiving man
Trust in God to right a wrong
When I see such things as this
I have to try to remain strong.

When such a travesty happens
Taking girls for selfish ends
I wish for justice, swiftly
For this bum and his friends.

He got his ounce of attention
More than an ounce of tears shed
I wish not an ounce of forgiveness
Maybe an ounce of lead in his head.

  1. I was just talking with my 21 year old son about this as we were listening to the latest turn in this sordid tale. I believe that has been a significant increase in the oppression of women all over the world in the last 25 years. You shed light on this fact and I thank you.

    When I see things like this I also have to keep the faith that justice will, in some way, be dealt. I find it difficult to believe that people like these men get away Scott-free all of their lives.
