Africa

 

 

Africa
Dark Continent.
Black womb of mankind.
Cradle of culture, and
Black.
Black African coffins.
 
****

Dark Continent,
Africa.
Elephants.
Lions and deer,
Flamingoes` fire,
Giraffes` tartans
And
Genocide.

*****

Africa.
Ribs,
Sunken, sullen sticky eyes.
Black swollen bellies, and empty, empty
Stomachs, and
Dark despair.
Africa.

Ignoring the elegies of earth
