Dis poem
shall speak of the wretched sea
that washed ships to these shores
of mothers cryin for their young
swallowed up by the sea
Dis poem shall say nothing new
Dis poem shall speak of time
time unlimited time undefined
Dis poem shall call names
names like Lumumba Kenyatta Nkrumah
Hannibal akhnaton Malcolm Garvey
Haile Selassie
Dis poem is vexed about apartheid racism fascism
The klu klux clan riots in Brixton Atlanta
Jim jones
Dis poem is revoltin against
1st world 2nd world
3rd world division man made decision
Dis poem is like all the rest
Dis poem will not be amongst great literary works
Will not be recited by poetry enthusiasts
Will not be quoted by politicians nor men of religion
Dis poem is knives bombs guns blood fire
Blazin for freedom
Yes
Dis poem is a drum
Ashanti mau mau ibo Yoruba nyahbingi warriors
Uhuru uhuru
Uhuru Namibia
Uhuru Soweto
Uhuru afrika
Dis poem will not change things
Dis poem need to be changed
Dis poem is a rebirth of a people
Arisin awakin understandin
Dis poem speaks is speakin has spoken
Dis poem shall continue even when poets have stopped writin
Dis poem shall survive u me it shall linger in history
In your mind
In time forever
Dis poem is time only time will tell
Dis poem is still not written
Dis poem has no poet
Dis poem is just a part of the story
His-story her-story our-story the story still untold
Dis poem is now ringin talkin irritatin
Makin u want to stop it
But dis poem will not stop
Dis poem is long cannot be short
Dis poem cannot be tamed cannot be blamed
