Poetry

AFRICAN BASTARDS By Adepoju Isaiah Gbenga

Written by Editor

Like ants, they trooped out

Decorated with stranger’s attire

Convinced of their culture…!!! 

Their language they had quickly forgotten

All-day rambling in bastardized language

Their children they lead on the path of extinction 

While their wives go

Around in naked dresses, called civilization 

At their place of worship, their forehead

On ground, their hands far stretched 

And their lips mumbling 

Worshipping the god of civilization 

They are but African BASTARDS 

Who in their actions

Divorce their country’s pride

Trooping after extinction…! 

Praising another

They are but African BASTARDS 

Those who at the end would put their tails

Behind their legs, running 

Back to their deserted homes…!!!
