Guilty As Touched …by Osalam Wosu 

As witness I stand 

To the crime that was done :

Together they came 

And across the lands they sailed 

Ravaging and sweeping clean 

Treasures long hidden;

Those laid bare and those within

They scaled the two hills  

 That guarded the heart of the land 

The penetrated the dark fortress

Where the scepter did rest 

In its shadowy enclaves they made a nest

And from its throne

       they enslaved the rest;

They scoured the lands 

  and the subjects did surrender.

This was the crime,

The crime my hands did commit,

And her body always surrendered.
