Stop sorcery killings


An entry in the Crocodile Prize

For instance!
She has heard, and she now fears.
What will it be? When tomorrow nears.
She can't do anything, except be in tears.
Truly! Thin, frail and old with all her years.
Does she pose these dangers?

Look at her! Stupid, dumb villagers.
Did you think she can cause all this damage?
She can hardly walk, a wooden stick as her crutch.
Please, please fellow women, don't be each other's nemesis
Stand up for what is right, for goodness sake! 
Stop this old time madness.

And you! Elite bunches of baboon-educated fools.
Regardless of all those A-list schools.
Your understanding and brains are stinky as stools.
And yet you stand there, thinking all is cool.

Wake up people! It only exists as a word.
There is no sorcery and witchcraft in this world.
Innocents blamed, lost lives, hasn't enough been done?
