Need I be educated
with timeless flowing knowledge
of the fisherman’s net casting
in deep shoal of sharks
all is but needless!

Need I be told
that black is bleak
bleak bleaker like black
of so many concocted pieces
to match me boot-to-shame
and I fall arrested by these
all is but needless!

I am a little wild poet,
taken on priesthood
in the swings of traditionalism
watching earnestly at the times
deeper reflections of me
taken under a miscroscopic eyes

I seek to JUSTIFY——
and to fight to the bones
of bullets of WORDS——
of the numerous deadly
heaped on the AFRICAN mind
