Happy New Year Printable Version PRINTABLE VERSION
by Odimegwu Onwumere, Nigeria May 14, 2006
Human Rights   Poetry



At the beginning of every-year,
Our hearts make resolutions,
While proletarian resolutions,
are revolution while unattended to.

The bourgeoisie are sheer undemocratic,
as if they are not the people
who map out or abolish democracy
As they, themselves, could be convenient with?

Many out of one of us
doubts the truth,
we have not come to compromise
with humanistic theories,
but are happy with
Marxists and Menshevik camps, and
(People Debase People) Party
Where democracy is maimed
At the hearts of the pseudo-Marxists
Before being judged at Menshevik camp
Can we call it petty- feudal-democrats?
Is that not sheer nonsense?

We have returned with our bodies,
from the old years
with the same old history with us,
And our hearts are kept at home?
We are numb and dumb,
But our hearts speak like patriot,
On how to manage the ultra-imperialism,
The most savage imperialism?
Established by (The Man living in bush)
Now made a king of the despots
In a human world?

What has been the rapid inferno
Of (The Man living in bush)
In the past years?

Answer: Development of despots,
Ever greater development of looters,
The growth of capitalism ascended,
Ideas of proletarian are pummeled to soil,
The inevitable decline of extortion,
Backwardness as a stigma of accounts,
Obsolete-socialist doctrines are introduces to the
Intimidating the non- intimidators,
(Political revolutionary movement
He introduces to wipe
predominant- communalists),
he calls, corruption fighting?
The peasant-movements begin to wonder

The intensification of this class struggle,
Many of whom were called dissidents,
And the societies were best
agitators of ideas, prejudices and hate.
Even capitalism he introduces,
has encamped even in the proletarian?
How do we separate Narodism from Marxism?

Against functions of humanity,
We are meant to suffer ineptitude, a
Word workers of way-forward
Abhors to a fault

We are meant to suffer
Extinction of all kinds:
Conscience extinction;
Humanity extinction;
Brotherhood extinction;
Rule of law extinction;
Social- Democrats’ extinction;
Freedom of _expression extinction etc.,
But profligate honourables
are introduced without taking
permission from any one.

We are still feudal dependence,
Upon the Democracy? We’re of
Christ and Mohammed,
but our actions and inactions
of Devil and Lucifer?

Happy New Year is grow-up innuendo,
Of hiding our stagnant perils,
But chaste is a word for all!
