Hooves soundly on the ground, awaking eye to eye with the disorder outright

Mutinous force take civilian mobile, and money is absolutely a war crime

Rebellious force to take civilian cars by force is absolutely a war felony

Hostile force exploit a tea-maker’s assistant to pay them top dollar for pleasure is a war of corruption

Rebellious force criminals carry weapons and mask their faces, and going ahead, robbing other property by force is absolutely a war evil.

No one seems to care.

Misconduct acts are committed by your so-called saviors

Armed fighting, an illicit in truth, frays against the faultless handing to melt the certainty

Fatherland is instantly changing as morality sneaks away. There is a degeneration in land

You endured continuing assembling fights until the oppressors were gone

When it comes to the things people do to each other in times of conflict

We ought now to be assassinating in peace and freedom’s name

You expect, we can only hope there will be a time we will make them pay for the misdeeds of outrage

In a reverse of hostility

Love must thrash

In a reverse of antipathy towards each other

Liberate earth dweller, barricade the battle.


Written on 22 May 2023, this poem is about the conflict, which began on April 15 this year, and has displaced almost 1.1 million people internally and into neighboring countries. Some 705 people have been killed and at least 5,287 wounded, according to the World Health Organization. The battle between Sudan’s army and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) has led to a collapse of law and order with looting that both sides blame on each other. Stocks of food, cash and essentials are rapidly dwindling. The ongoing attacks include killings, beatings, sexual violence, lootings, and the burning of houses, banks, markets, and government institutions.
