Danger of Silence

Danger of Silence

They burnt Basoga Village; I kept silent
'cause Basogas were our enemies

They hacked families in the town; I kept silent
'cause those were not known to me

They raped daughters of Sylvester in my next door; I kept silent 
'casue they were not my daughters

And one day,.......
I heard that deadly knock on my door.............

- An Ugandan who lost his limbs and family during Idi Amin regime
