Beginning of wisdom

Boko boko boko boko haram,/
Bok, bok, bok, boko haram/
Pampering and roasting like rams/

Bok, bok, bok, boko haram!/

Spraying dread dancing everywhere in air/
Even mere power outage at business submit/
Sent CBN lion and diplomats scampering with fear/
Farting, crawling, crying, whispering “damn it”/

Bok, bok, bok, boko haram!/

Are your colours of death not like chameleonic war/
Maiming Muslims, Christians alike in jams?/
You even sentence unborn babies to earth’s floor…/
Could you hint us what truly ails your killing farms?/
Are your earthquakes for masses benefit?/
‘Faithfuls’ of the moon and star are also victims of your joy/
Sent too early to darkness in bloody bed sheets./
Oh, come see how sky sorrowfully boils!/

Bok, bok, bok, boko haram!/

Can you help bring all dubious Pharaohs to book?/
Could you blow all hidden wealth from their dams/
Instead of silencing saints with indiscriminate hook?/
Many masses will worship at your feet/
Including seven heavenly virgins smiling to earth/
Caressing every nook and cranny in paradise streets/
Painted with endless love, success, joy, devoid of death./

Bok, bok, bok, boko haram!/

Is there any light in this my this?/
Please, let me drink if you are accountable for peace/

Bok, bok, bok, boko haram

So, we can celebrate with goodbyes to harm/
Tickling, tickling, tickling the town/
With omelete, hotdogs baptised with jam/
Drenched with harmonious paradise plans/

Bok, bok, bok, boko haram!/
