(In memory and appeal for justice for the lunching of 90 year old Akuah Denteh accused of witchcraft )
Brave enough to lynch a witch and not the deadly corona virus.
You were not even scared of being turned into a dish or committing any flaws.
Did you know that rebellion to rules alone is as sinful as witchcraft ?
And if the supposed victims are truly witches.
Why haven’t their group revenged by granting you some death wishes!?
Lynching and other inhuman activities are a grand disgrace to humanity.
Yet such cruelty happens right in our vicinity
Even witchcraft accusations are on rampant in our places of worship.
Especially when one fails to produce a baby
Or even swim in wealth like somebody
our innocent mother’s are the very ones to blame
For that sayeth the Lord or gods they claim.
The same womb that bore you and gave you a name, is now accused as the teeth pulling your fame
Stripping the older generation of their dignity and filling it with pain and shame
I’m even surprised of such outmoded practices in this modern generation
Forcing the innocent to suffer such violation
But wait, why are the victims always the poor and vulnerable in the society?
Witchcraft accusations in marriages is even a pity
In-laws turn witches and angels of the darknight
Whilst prophets becomes the angels of the light.
Abusing the innocent’s right with several harassment
This injustice happens without any trial or proper judgement
If you would agree with me on this piece,
Then I guess it’s time human rights abuse including lynching should be ceased.
