ETHIOPIA see talking slums silenced tongues freedom silenced hope killed a bling of ghettos collapsed humanity mothers weeping , under the compression of religion trees dripping tears Ethiopia your festering open wounds you are my anger! children burn in smoldering canisters of hunger time opened new wounds of memories of old scars chained on rocks of ignorance you need a compass of decency my poetry is a catalyst fermenting your injustices into beverages of justice you are my sadness! your heartbeat bleached in political fermentation rhythm galvanized in furnaces of cultural myth laughter imbibed by the rude stomach of the gun culture crushing under the weight of globalization

Another potent pen. I really like your use of language, you breathe new life into words, stretching them to your bidding. You are an artful poet. 7 xomo
