If I die today...

 











If I die today,
please don't cry a lot.
Dance and ululate.
sing the old funeral song
which has no emotion or passion

If i die today
Make it simple
No expensive cascade
No body viewing

No long speech
Just bury me
Never delay the ants' party

If i die today
I would have died
So bury it.

Their Condition-Their sin


 












they kill
      and they rape
             they are sinners.

              THEY-don’t kill
       and THEY- don’t rape
THEY-are just innocent

here, THEY-are killed
       THEIR freedom is raped
               THEIR condition is sin.

                    THEY are said to be,
                 “worse than pigs and dogs”
              by he who is worse than the devil
          all fingers point at them as sin
when some are sin and need cleansing

they kill-THEY don’t
        they rape-THEY don’t
              THEIR condition-THEIR sin

                  back to the creator
              why would he create them
          a laughing stock?
      he is the master of reason
each verse has a hidden meaning
         this is THEIR season.

HE DIED IN 1983



 









He loved the war
Fought in the war
Won the war
But lost the battle

One year
One month
One week
One day
One night
One time
They came
He ran
Jungle became his home

They were in red berets
Carrying guns and grenades
They killed my brother
Raped mother
Fucked sister
The whole family was sucked


They followed him into the bush
Beat all villagers
Who said they never saw him
He wanted uHuru
He wanted Freedom
He wanted the Land
He wanted Sovereignty
He wanted black Independence
He wanted black economic empowerment
