TALKING DRUM INNOVATION

~God~Love~Poetry~Life~Spoken-Word~Night Tales~

I KNOW A COUNTRY

Relax and give ear to my tale

Tale of a beautiful black territory

It might make your face, pale

But this is the totality of reality

I know a country

Whose leaders are sadist and greedy,

Extremely egocentric without reasonable reason

And toys with the nation’s treasury

With their sharp claws of injustice

They poke the eyes of justice

Butcher truth at the abattoir of service

Spicing it up with malodorous fragrance

Feeding the citizens with ephemerals

Adapting their skin to chronic hardship

Leaving them in a state of despondency

On the territory filled with earth’s glory

ALAS! Presenting opportunity that hold a cost

This country

A stronghold of abundant human drudgery

Where terrorists terrifies terribly

Killing young and old, going scot-free!

Now I ask

where then is the proclaimed liberty?

Of what essence is the gospel of equity?

When the spirit of democracy

Lies in the sepulcher of autocracy

But this I find difficult to comprehend;

Why citizens with power

Dig the grave of their future

With their skinny thumb of ignorance?
