Westfield

Nothing is appeasing

About Westfield:

It’s not the heavy-handed atrocities

Or the uprisings it hosted;

It’s not the fall of the students’ union,

Or the silencing of Sandeng Darboe;

Nor even a backlash on the fallen innocents

That had bullet-notched-backs, broken bones,

Maimed for life, been arm less, harmless,

Retreating, chanting for their rights, everyone’s;

Not even the loss by some families,

An incremental increase of widows.

Remember Westfield:

Peaceful protests to be marred by cold brutalities;

Because Westfield edifies

An end to fear;

An end to the cunning brutalities;

A raised voice for freedom

An end to dictatorship.
