WHO WILL LIVE FOR THOSE WHO NO LONGER HAVE HEADS? A shout in the desert of International Community

You didn’t hear… or did you hide willingly under the bed of abstraction?

Maybe you did hear about Boko Haram and other terrorist movements in action…

But, you see, your geography professor told you as did your musician,

With all the calm and seriousness of an academician,

That Kousseri, Maroua, Mora, Tourou, Moskota, Koza, Ouzal, Mozogo,

And other localities or infrahuman countries must go,

Because their humanity index is so low, and,

They are located on an unknown planet, the land of tomorrow.

Why worry about the future

While one calmly drinks today’s culture?


Maybe you didn’t see what is happening on social media as your soul became a taro…

Because, above all, you must set your economic priorities right to beat the antihero

And accumulate as much power and things as you can carry in your empty barrow.

Your business professor told you so, with his academic sombrero.

Your financial advisor is such a genius so different from the harrow

That you gather things, things and more things, and the great dinero.

You eat power, power and more power over bones without a marrow.

Aren’t they mere keys to your success today and tomorrow?

Your eyes can’t see while you dream to be the next pharaoh

And, after all, your neighbor is just a dried arrow!


Who will cry for those who no longer have heads?

Who will become a shelter for those who no longer have beds?

Who will eat for those who can no longer smell the odor of fresh breads?

Who will bring joyous colors to lives painted in multiple reds?

Who will tell Europe, America, Asia and others, that Boko Haram spreads

Faster and deeper than the swiftest fighters and meds?

Who will act? Who will dig? Who will lovingly address the roots

Instead of relying solely on boots?


Oh! I wish you and I were the recovered triumphant shouts of the voiceless!

Oh! I wish you and I were the beautiful tears of the tearless!

Oh! I wish you and I were the real wealth of the resourceless!

Oh! I wish you and I were the reconstructed ramparts of the powerless!

Oh! I wish you and I were the regained smiles of the hopeless!

Oh! I wish you and I were the lost but found face of the faceless!

Oh! I wish you and I were the living image of the divine rock for the baseless!

Oh! I wish you and I were the real value of lives so priceless!

Regardless of our religious backgrounds, we are all humans;

Would you and I actively navigate against the currents and stop treating others as subhumans?

“Ta kda ndo n’rezla’a man a tètèkè maya azbai.” (n’gelègdma mafahai).

“On ne tue pas l’ignorant qui mendie la sagesse.” (Proverbe mafa).

“Nobody kills an ignorant who begs for wisdom.”  (Mafa proverb).

Sens: Au lieu de prétendre qu’on connait quelque chose et de demeurer dans l’ignorance, il vaut mieux être assez humble pour se renseigner ou s’instruire.

P.S: For detailed explanation of this proverb in English please visit:


“Ka slu dimesh ndo bai, ka gotso n’gèce ndo bai.” (n’gèlegèdma mafahai)

“Ne chante pas le chant d’autrui, ne danse pas la danse d’autrui.” (Proverbe Mafa)

“Do not sing someone’s song, do not dance someone’s dance.” (Mafa Proverb)

Signification: Sois naturel. Tu es original(e), pourquoi voudrais-tu etre une mauvaise photocopie?

Victor Hugo a dit, dans le même esprit,  “N’imitez rien ni personne. Un lion qui copie un lion devient un singe.
