The Black Poet... Printable Version PRINTABLE VERSION
by akinbo a. a. cornerstone, Nigeria Jan 16, 2009
HIV/AIDS , Culture , Citizen Journalism   Poetry

  

They claim they are White
and we are Black,
What people say...
...Oh, what people say;

They tell us to sit is take the seat,
while soldiers are told to sit up
rather than sit down;

HIV/AIDS is on a visit to Africa,
Edi is not AIDS,
Esu is not the devil,
Orunmila is not Jesus;

Who holds the word
holds the world,
Forget the White,
be a Black Poet.
