Religious regret

When we were just kids
We were told some tales
And read some in books
Fairy and histories
Of how twin killings
Were abolished; then
And how the crosses
Became refuge from
Immoralities;
So commendable.

But as at this dawn
Seems histories drew
Wrong pictures of us
Our tradition and pride
Was washed off in seas
Retracing our path
I see strange footprints
Unmentioned in books
Gun powders, claiming
Quadruplets every seconds

We had our monarchy
Running well in ancients
But brainwashed and slaved;
Even shrines we burnt
Turned mosque and church
Chief priest we condemn
Has now evolved
Preaching and performing
Miracles, commanding crowds
Africa gods inside white clothes.
