THE DUBIOUS EBOLA GAME

Let's make this call to America
From the heart beat of Africa
Long ago when they came
To polished good will
When the Chiefs and kings
Sold me beyond my will
Labeled me days in servitude
Now an international conspiracy
With the same old tricks
Whether it be for it treasures
Gold and diamond
Borax and bauxite
Labor and jinx
O me, O my Africa!
I have seen this goblin before
Still treating me the same
With the same old tricks
Segregated before
Now they say touch not
Bereaved not
A true replicate
Of ‘man's monster message'

THE PRIEST WITH A SAXOPHONE

he came, his sword unsheathed
like his forbears in -deed
cutting through thickets of injustice and oppression
he plunged deep into
the hearts and the heart of corruption

he came, a priest in lyrics robe
made an altar of music
he called forth saxophone
horns and drums did his bidding
lyrics, rhythm and harmony were his adornments

imbued with power of music
he cast off cassock of white lily thoughts
and embraced the gourd of black wisdom
necklace of cowries adorned his neck
he pulled down frontiers and fortes
of imperialisms and all isms

he lived Africa
bought and thought Africa
he died African....

We are back

We are back
From foreign lands
Replete with temporal pleasures
Overseas, across the boarders
As heavy-hearted as we are
With our bodies zonked
Nonentities we were
Among a people heinous

We are back
To shed scars we got abroad
With Warm smiles
From fellow nationals
In this Heart of Africa
To retain our dignity
We sold for survival
And lost for good
Leaving our hopes in vain

We are back
Sated with unmet wants
To stay for life
Among brothers and sisters
And have our prosperity
In this land of our ancestors
The Warm Heart of Africa

Phallic Symbols

i love italy, i love Peninsular Malaysia
I love the Scandinavian Peninsula,
i love India, Africa and South America
they are phallic symbols
sticking out of great continents
each holding a bag of fertile cultures
to impregnate our adventurous minds
that dart round to feel God's greatness

I love Siva, I love her Pavita
Lingam and Oni that help circulate
the melting pot of fertile cultures

I love Italy, I love Peninsular Malaysia
India, Africa, S America and the Scandinavian Peninsula
they are phallic symbols
fertilising the thoughts for things
adventurous, and physical

forgive me if i have missed you
corners of earth that
jut out long enough for us
to take notice of their verile
existence
to take that second fertile look
