When a child belonged to the community
Now everyone on his own
Because none cares 

Gone are days of blood brotherhood

deep, deep into the coven
Men gathered in black red
chanting of loom doom to come
Spiritualism shrunk and shrieked
Enchantment of idols of life 
Chanting rumbles of voidness and
tempest and hailstones and hell
Devil's advocates gathered in tears
Demons gathered diplomatically
Evils danced here and there...Read More

My African Woman
My African woman,
I then title you something number one
To my mind, heart and soul
By whenever I introduce the thought of you in me
The rivers in my drainage basin flow not with water,

     (Apropos The Ripping Veil of Pan-Africanism)

In all her blackness
her soils run red
with the blood of her children

Whose bloated bellies
mock the pregnancy

And her breasts

We shall take a walk
Before I bequeath these smithereens of my ailed agnostic frame of mind;
I will write a poem; only one of its kind;
A poem about our walk under a starlit night,
Where you will learn that Africanism is nothing of wrong or right.

A comedy in History
Never forgetting those loud voices 
Voices acting as the vehicles of historical antimonies
Antimonies which in themselves are testimonies of ideological betrayal
These conflicting mirages of imagination
Divorcing the empirical from the theoretical
And shouts from the Actions.

Abreast the crest of rejected African egos,
Egos...Read More
