Your teenage girl in prison
In a jail far away without charges
For four days
Because she dared to try to save
a few things
if you could demolish a home
while people screamed –
“all in a days’ work,”
If you could see the place now
The tent poles bent
On the ground
you could understand
this absurd and tragic place.
Maybe you could explain it
See the VIDEO by Operation Dove about the demolition at Um Fagara; it will break your heart.
Good poem .Thanks for your feelings toward our issues
Thanks, Sulaiman, it’s good to get your feedback and I hope we stay in touch!
Thank you for your important accompaniment and for keeping all your readers engaged in the struggle.
Chris, this is all really powerful, and I find myself on my knees in prayer since I can’t figure out what else to do!
