The Judges Lied - Poem by Tony Adah

How one state
Turned into two states
Can quarell, I do not know
How one state's
Wells of liquid gold
Got cedded to another state
And her people cedded
To another country
I wonder!
When strangers came to steal
We divided ourselves
Along percuniary lines
And refused to spot
The common enemy
Went to court
Where the judges lied
Robbing Peter to pay Paul.
How one knife
Can have two hilts
I do not know.
What unites us
Is greater than ephemeral
Liquid gold hidden
In the belly of our mother earth.
