Awakened by Atrocity in Aba, Nigeria

Aba, Nigeria

After nightmares of cannibalistic frenzy
            after the bodies had been dumped in the refuse pit
                        No one could look anyone in the eye
                        The transcendental concept of humanity had collapsed
                        Replaced for generations by suspicion

Emaciated armies feed on one another
Flesh ripped from infant bones

Poetry no longer possible
