Justice Is Done
Beaten up, Robbed, Hospitalized? And the witnesses? Many as the grains of the sand: Kadiel is one; Ndoulla Ndyam Bele is one Even the birds can testify… But you forget that the chief Has his son as the judge And his son-in-law as interpreter.
Original in French, by Mauritanian poet, Oumar Ba (1921-1998)
For those who live the reality depicted by this poem, we pray for:
God’s justice to become a light to Mauritania, and for his arm to bring justice to this nation. (Isaiah 51:4-5)
