THE LAST SANE CONTINENT

By Shedrack Akor 5 months ago

They call us animals

Not because we hop from tree to tree

'Tis because we refuse to forget our morals

And sell for nought what they can only wish for

 

They call us cannibals 

Not because we eat flesh

'Tis because we refuse to forsake our culture

And for nought mimic the pretense they call civilization

 

They call us third world countries

Not because we lack natural resources

'Tis because they have turned us against ourselves

And for nought some of us cower at their feet

 

They mock our skin colour

Not because it is too dark

'Tis because black is beautiful even in old age

And out of envy they propose surgery.
