THE EMIGRANT

here they come,
with batons made of the white 
mans wits,
with the sounds of our ancestral 
thunders,
all in different shapes.

marvelled we were,
seing them fly in the air,
and some down on moving 
huts,
faster than our forefathers 
ghosts,

he shouted a command,
they attacked...
we retreat,
then we attacked.

we attacked,
yes! a karmikase,
kpa! kpaa! kpaaa! 
tuue! tuee!,
duum! duum!. That was the 
sound of their machine power.

dead!
we all layed dead.
they sketched and exploited our 
land,
then they left,
yes they did
with our land left barren.
