"I Will Go to A New Bornu" A Poem By Kazim Shalom — Pawners Paper

And if there be need for churches or mosques They'll outlive their builders. Libraries, museums and theatres will be our roadjectives

Kazim Shalom is already known for his profond writing dexterity which is evident in his previous published works such as Hadiza, a short fictional story that takes the readers on a ride to explore the indigenous culture and communities within Nigeria, creating a serene worth the hype.

Also, in "I Will Go To A New Bornu", his taste for african wasn't left out as he focuses on Bornu, one of the states in the northern part of Nigeria. He reflects on the insecurity, discrimination and poor amenities in the state and wishes to go to " a new Bornu, in distant time from now".

He reiterates further on having a new world and ends, inviting all " wouldn't you like to come to my new venue, when the time comes?"




I Will Go to A New Bornu


I will go to a new Bornu
In no distant time from now
When nothing else matters, except that I am living
I will go to a new Bornu
Where the rifles of former terrorists 
     And former statesmen
 Would go off together in celebration of a federation     
       I will go to a new Bornu
   Where concentration camps would become museums
I will go to a new Bornu
   Where Chibok will be the centre of civilized humanism.
In my new Bornu, there'll be no gates to keep strangers off
  There'll be concrete poles that run with electricity 
And bored holes that will never taste rusty or bloody again.
In my new Bornu, there'll be no Christian or Muslim
And if there be need for churches or mosques
     They'll outlive their builders.
Libraries, museums and theatres will be our roadjectives
  And should you get lost one morning
     Your host would be a professor
He'll say "Welcome to the Home of Peace".


When the new Bornu comes—not far from now!—
  A concensus for a new FCT would be signed
   And a middle-aged woman from Imo
   Would head our big campus.


Wouldn't you like to come to my new Bornu
When the time comes?
