A SLAP ON REVOLUTION

By Nelson Vincent Ayomitunde

 

When we raise our hands in resilience

We are battered down in disdain

When we raise our eyes against decadence

We are plunged back into societal pediplain

When we raise our voices against pestilence

We are cut off into pain

When we raise our hands against insolence

We are mashed like potatoes and plantain

Do not worry

Even if we lose our lives in this vanguard

It won’t be vain.
