THE AFRICA RAPED

When hunters’ hunts unveiled her She sat in mystery like the virgin she was Adorned by great forests Clothed by beautiful trees Surrounded by caring rivers Being serenaded by great seas As she sat on the much need riches Scared at first, they sought to shoot Then realized her worth And sought to take They […]

GRAMMAR FEUDS

In the land of Parts of Speech All resolve my yearnings to teach But indulge in verbal breach Rendering me an outcast II See, they couple by inflections And I couple by base, no inflections My lonely sound bounce back in deflections Because of the addition of ‘s’ to my name; ‘Shows’ III Now Tables […]

UNDER THE SKIRT OF SUPERIORITY

Fears run rampantDown the streetsWhen words are lost andSolace springs from thin air,Molecular mornings igniteDivisions uniting the sky,Conjoining the lost,Churning distant souls refinedInto something quite like you and I   II Something can be nothing Walking through thin air without a face Taunting with blurred thoughts without a trace Molecular afternoons ignite Threatening to spark […]

CONSENSUS

Had a duet with the sensational Lisa Ojanpera on theme Racism. This is a white and black blend, please enjoy and let the white and black clouds merge.

RACISTS ALERT

These natural black overalls These natural white overalls These natural brown overalls These natural yellow overalls Are just overalls like all overalls We wear them to cover worldly alls And take them off for earth to blend Then our souls are seen as one Who fights for packaging When all they do is package? We […]

SCARY WHITE, SCARY BLACK

I Let our imaginations run wild And for once dream  With no thoughts of victimization Nor victimising Isn’t creation interesting? II Imagine how the white man felt When he first saw the black man Probably scared out of his wits So scared, he took to his heels Shouting of seeing a ghost Tripping, falling, rolling […]

IT WAS NATURE IMMACULATE

FROM AN AFRICAN WHOSE CHILDHOOD WEEPS

From the soothing balm of shea To the ginger, pepper suppository Through to hunger which was queer And quenched with thick breakfast of ‘coco’ With plenty sunshine, my happiness was sealed By the creator   I, like an angel, knew no colour I knew no difference I knew humans, black, white, yellow and whatever And […]

AN EXCERPT FROM MY POEM “OBAMA/OSAMA EYE OPENER”

“Who would’ve known The one who made the powerfuls terror known Could be taken down In an open town By one whose name rhymes As his and lived in his same times?   Who would’ve known The one whose fear was never shown Would have no voice And no choice And would be stripped off […]

MINDFUL PAINFULS

Thoughts of the Fante gallants

Subdued by harmless guns

As they plead

“M’agya etu, mepawokyew

Menkum me ai! Mere ke sonkyi maaba”

To a mouthless gun kills my spirit over and over again

I look through with my crew and throw some out

To make sure everyone is all-right-"

LET’S HAUNT THE HAUNTERS

I am a black chalk Chalks of all colours Let’s join hands and draw a painting to stalk. A painting to stalk inferiority complex, A painting to stalk superiority, A painting to stalk ethnocentrism A painting to stalk racism And haunt them until they land In the traps of their hunters Let’s give those hunters […]
