You Died in Secret

You died in secret
Your adieu hushed up
Your overlords in Abuja
While consoling fallen aliens
Gave no thought for you
You died in secret
The bell did not toll for you
The town crier did not cry
The flag did not descend
Silence did not observe a minute
You died in secret
The Caliphate did not notice
The Delta did not discern
The Lagoon did not detect
The cable did not publish it
You died in secret
You came unannounced
You loved unaffected
You toiled uncelebrated
You departed unacknowledged
You died in secret
