Happy October 1

Written by: S. A. David

Our fathers went 
through slavery in 
the hands of those 
lions.
Our mothers, their 
wives, were 
usurped by the 
foxes.
They came with 
the bible and the 
bomb.
They led them to 
work their 
plantation in the 
new world.
After sapping 
more than enough, 
they left in 'sixty.

The civil war 
imploded- we saw 
it.
Some eastern 
earth was 
scorched.
Many fell into a 
long last sleep.
We've seen all the 
crises- some, with 
their lives.
Everyone 
embezzles all they 
can.
The congregation 
of haram 
threatens to tear
the green white 
green.

The New World 
gives a 2015-
ultimatum.
Despite, she is 52.
She will wax 
stronger, I know
She will take over 
Africa, I believe
She will be a G8 
someday, we pray.

Do all you can to 
celebrate
It's your day, you 
have no other 
demonym
Let the cigarette 
sticks be green 
white green
Let the bottles be 
green
Let the apples be 
green
Let the stew be 
green
Let the beef be 
green
Let the beans be 
green
Yes, green earth
