A Fool's Plan
Come, a fool said to another,
let’s hide from our nasty past
of evil done by our father,
but their darkness shall not last.
He says to the simple minded,
let’s call Biafra a fiction.
Like we were a perfect kindred
from the start with no friction.
He says, if we strongly deny,
Achebe can seem like liars.
Let’s design history you and I
as gauze is made with some pliers.
Can you tell that fool to be quiet?
We have not learnt from history yet.
