Go ahead, kill me
Take a swing at me with your blades
Drop the stones on my defenseless body
Kill me with anything you find close to you
Stones, sticks, knives, fire; it doesn’t matter
Find anything you need to deliver a death-blow
Just murder me
End my life as if you care about the threat of my existence to society
Don’t look around
Do not stop to think
You won’t listen to my pleas so what is the point?
Just end my life on this hill
End my suffering I beg you
Make it go away
Help me stop this rage bubbling inside of me
This rage about my lost faith in humanity
This rage about my lost faith in the sanctity of life
This rage about my lost faith in the rule of law
Upon this hill, red-eye murder stands over me
I am a threat to them
A threat to their families, their neighbors, their friends
They have conclusive evidence of my guilt
It is kill or be killed
They have no choice but to murder me
They are my judges, my jury and my executioners
Of course, they are wise judges
Of course, they are a wise jury
Of course, they are compassionate executioners
They have taken for themselves the power to take away God’s creation
Oh, do not forget to capture my demise on video
Share my murder with the world
Share my murder to justify your actions
We will all side with you
Yes, we will all applaud you for murdering an innocent man
Yes, we will praise you for your wise decision not to grant me an opportunity to prove my innocence
Yes, we will applaud you for a job well done
For the rest of you, go ahead and share my gruesome murder with the world
Go ahead and show ghastly images of my murdered and burnt body over and over again
Sure, my loved ones won’t mind
They love to see images of my beaten, battered and burnt body all over the place
They understand that you are sensitive to your fellow human so please, share away
Let me ask this question as I exit this cruel world
Who is responsible for my murder?
Who do I blame for my murder?
Who will you blame when they come to murder you?
Rest in Eternal Peace, Captain Maxwell Adam Mahama.
