Poem – He is Gagged

A poem dedicated to Martyn Namorong, Papua New Guinean Blogger and Anti-corruption Activist

HE IS GAGGED

 

He tries to lower

The flags of corruption

He is gagged

 

He tries to uproot

The weed of corruption

He is gagged

 

He tries to expose

The secrecy of corruption

He is gagged

 

He tries to unveil

The guises of corruption

He is gagged

 

He tries to unearth

The deep roots of corruption

He is gagged

 

He tries to deactivate

The time bomb of corruption

He is gagged

 

He tries to breach

The walls of corruption

He is gagged

 

He tries to burn

The debris of corruption

He is gagged

 

In all his attempts

To dethrone the monsters of corruption

He is gagged

 

He is cuffed

He is suppressed

He is gagged
