A WAR AT THE DOOR ! FIKRE WORKNEH | Ethiopian News | ZeHabesha


    It is unsettling, trying time for our mother land

    Her old enemies are talking war

    Out to shad her blood

    Take her drinking water and occupy all that she possessed

    She has out lived all wars band of enemies

    In the middle ages  she vanquished  Muslim invaders

    Came to her shore to take her people  Into slaves

    In recent past , her brave warriors fought against

    Mussolini ‘s fascist army and drove them out of her terrorizes

    Her battle tested warriors gallantly fought Mussolini

    With brave heart in every region until he demoralized

    Defeated , and embarrassed and fled

   Once again her belligerent  neighbors threatening

    to cross her border

   To loot  and vandalize her precious water

    They must know they are playing with raging fire

    The like of which they never seen before

    A looming hovering above like heavy dark cloud

    To bring flood uproot people like dry trees in the ground

    I am anguished and heavy hearted and overwhelmed  by sadness

    Our precious home land is engulfed  by raging fire, social upheavals

    Disgruntled terrorists

   The threat of war from afar  has been always present and dangerous

    We also must pay special attention to home grown

   disillusioned , misguided  Disgruntled fellow brothers and sisters

    They have become assassins and arsonists

    Stetting ablaze villages farms , homes churches , schools

    The fabric of our society , our humanity and our core values

   Are defiled our rich history are in the verge of braking down

   The bed rock of our long held way of life  is its knees

    This tragic ethnic driven war even could  cascade

    Into massive mayhem and loss of life hard to comprehend

    Our cherish history will be disbanded and discard

    Foster animosity and suspicion neighbor against neighbor

   produce  a legacy of hate and a broke society in disrepair

    These are our flesh and blood being aggrieved  , falling victims

    Setting ablaze own homes

    Crying loud shading tears for being homeless

    They are invisible warriors without an insignia Or military uniform

    They are zealots could inflict an existential  societal harm

    They aspire a Goal to establish Some from utopia

   Burning down to ashes our precious land Ethiopia

    They are like an adolescent who murder his parents

    In the fit of anger , out of control emotion

    Ask for mercy of the court because he was an orphan

    Ethiopians are in mourning for the lost burned down

    Homes, churches for murdered souls

    For mutilated women for unborn babies  taking out by force

    from the womb of their mothers

    discarded to feed the vultures

   For kidnaped held hostage never return homes and families

    Ethiopia has been tested and retested  by war hunger and disses  and ramen

    This too will come to pass

    She will rise like morning sun  rise again and  again
