What is the colour of war,
pray tell me...
In Rwanda, it is green
April, the month of abundance
Green April, green genocide
green, the wealth of the country
the reflection of heartless bastards
Green, envy, Green, war...
its diamond, Its Gold, the wealth of nature
the colour of nature,
black, death...black, war
it is gold;
liquid, heavy, deep down in the earth
corroding the very essence of life
killing the breath that is life,
brown, oily, gold, hell...gold, war
In the Sudan, Sierra Leone,
the colour wheel spins
black, red, green
the colors of war,
Pray let me know
So when one day when I cannot speak
and I hold a crayon in my hand, paint
when I will tell stories in colour
then I will freely call it black, or gold, or green….
The colour of war
is not red
Red is the colour of the pain that is war
Pray, tell me then...
