The Girl-Soldier and True-Lie Answer

The Girl-Soldier:
Injustice, corruption, discrimination she saw
Deeply entrenched in her society
Ruling all and sundry

Her youthful innocent heart bleeds
She sheds blood and not tears
She was too disappointed to understand

Then she carried a gun to fight
A gun of truth
The gun of passion
The gun of selfless service

Her gun is her passion to make a difference
The courage to be the change
The determination to make a change

There goes the girl-soldier

True-Lie Answer:

If I had not worded my 3 true-lie puzzle the way I did, it wouldn't have being a puzzle anymore and would have being easy to figure out. Archiwiz, NDQ, Bumight and Marjoram got it right!
  1. I sure have a lunch date with Pat Utomi. I partook in a Facebook essay he originated "how hopeless youth can make change in Nigeria" (I reprhased it). The prize for the winners would be to have a lunch date with him. I won and the lunch will soon happen. 
  2. How can I not currently have cats? Even Aloted got it wrong! And Aloted kai! When I am not out of the country and with all my passion for cats, I will just get rid of my 4 precious feline kids like that? Haba!
  3. I have met Chari and Poetically Tinted. They are both my buddies now. I love them both. (I had mentioned meeting them on my blog before)
Woomie O, if I were to do the dirty linen thing, I doubt if blogville knows me enough to figure out the truth but I am giving this as a bonus, be the first to figure this out and others are welcome to do same:

Another Round:
  1. I had asked guy(s) out before.
  2. I dated a lecturer.
  3. I was circumcised.
So which one is so untrue?

Tigeress said...

I'd say no.3 - only becos i dont want to believe that as a female u were circumcised. The thot of it alone is horrifying.

LG said...

Um, I think number 2 is untrue but I desperately hope its number 3 so my answer will be number 3.

No 2 is a lie...

Writefreak said...

ShonaVixen said...

Kafo said...

The Activist said...

Baroque: Though, I am not ready to give away the answer, But do not forget that my activism is based on telling the truth and sharing how we can all leave past mistakes behind and make a big impact in the world.

Why won't I say it here if I were circumcised? Would that be a shameful thing for me ot admit?

How will I be able to say no to FGM if I dont want to share it on blogsphere

What say you?

Big Anty Activist.
Thanks for your comment on my Blog.
Achebe has further added his legendry voice to the need for women's active involvement in Nigeria politics.If only our leaders will listen,like you said.
We must continue to push for women's positive participation in good governance.This is one of the pillars of getting Nigeria out of the woods.

Afrobabe said...

WHEN did this question come up that there is already an answer...kai, I missed...I would have gotten it...

My Passion, my focus, the change that I want to see in the world - is my propellent factor.
