Create a White Soil, It is worth the toil

Written by: Adeleke Adeite

I am black, 
you are 
white... of 
course,
my blood 
is red, 
what 
colour is 
yours?
I am an 
African, 
you are an 
American,
The Sun is 
my skin, 
why do 
you tan?

'I am 
white, you 
are black', 
well said!
I have one 
head, have 
you got 
dash head?
Oh you are 
well read, 
you swim 
in books,
where 
comest 
these 
clowns 
and 
crooks?

I am black, 
you are a 
Briton, 
that's right,
you can 
read and 
write, see 
that light?
You have 
two hands 
and one 
high heart,
why crave 
this awful, 
ancient 
African art?

I am black, 
I have this 
simple 
sack,
Hey 
whiteman, 
I know 
you do not 
lack,
I live in a 
hut, right 
on a 
humble hill,
I see those 
misiles in 
your 
power mill.

I am black 
you are 
white, 
that's 
wow!
You did 
not create 
that 
colour...why 
cow?
You call me 
a monkey, 
I eat sweet 
bananas,
You seem 
like a racist 
with 
lustuous 
lacunas.

I am black, 
yet in my 
eyes I see 
the stars,
from that 
white 
skies you 
see but 
scars...
You are so 
different, 
why do 
you lament,
I am 
indifferent, 
you sound 
like... 
accident!

I am black, 
but you 
are in a 
black list,
You seem 
to be a 
terrorist, 
yes a racist!
You will 
one day go 
down in a 
black soil
or create a 
white soil, 
it is worth 
the toil!
