earth weeps for earth

Written by: Canny Amah

post to her
mother earth
mother of niger lads
her lads are crying
crying & drowning
in running tears 
torrents of torments
when she comes
to this old homestead
earth weeps for earth
mother for lads
lads for mother
our songs arrive
the borders of rivers
earth upon earths
new born souls
age over-night
and
earth weeps for earth
