Poem: There Would Be Peace 

By Okaka Opio Dokotum

If the warriors could plan for the future
The way they plan for raids
If the warriors could invest in seeds
The way they invest in bullets

If they would be proud of the hoe
The way they are proud of the gun
If they could shoot dead famine
With the vengeance they shoot kraal owners

If they could beg God for mercy
With the tenacity they beg visitors for money
There would be peace in Warriorland
There would be peace around Warriorland
There would be eating, drinking, dancing
And men would live in harmony
