In loving memory of Dana plane crash victims,
Sun June 3rd, 2012.
A wailing was heard in Lagos
Weeping and great mourning
Dana weeps for her offspring
Who would not at this loss?
She refused to be comforted
For all her brood are no more
Aboard and afloat like of yore
She smiled to the sky assured
Lively with wealth and health
Animated with treasury of life
Of beauty, of love and of strive
But you were waiting oh death!
A heartless beast and a sadist
Hiding under wings of shadows
Coward in the order of shallows
Or wouldn’t you fight with fist?
Aside, we have many an enemy
For the reason of being humans
Thus let all board to these planes
Fighting for our good like an army
I come to you Dana in solidarity
With candles, words and flowers
Hold back your eyes from tears,
And your cry from misery and pity
Behold, they’ll return to you anew
Though you don’t know how but wait
And like the fruiting of a grain of wheat
Peace would come to you like dew
Jeremiah 31: 15-16
I commiserate with you with a heartfelt sympathy,
