The Annoying Thing Printable Version PRINTABLE VERSION
by Odimegwu Onwumere, Nigeria Jun 28, 2006
Human Rights   Poetry


The annoying thing
Is worth annoying for indeed;
It is not only Kaffir they call us
Is the bane, but questioning of
Everything that we do:
Who gave you the certificate to teach us?
Where did you get such qualifications?
Who are you to hold a PhD or even preach?

This is still the way and manner
They made buffoons of our wise fathers
By enticing them with bloody gifts
And they turned traitors to the land
That they were defending

They removed peace to pieces;
They removed love to lust and to lucre;
They taught brother how to kill brother.
And yet they still see us as being primordial?
Juxtaposing to this, we all are melee!
