Black Feathers By D-Ray #WOWAfrica

Consider dis poem tipex to right una wrongs
Dem say words gimme wings
I say no be lie!,no need to fly visa
As a poet,my pidgin get feathers.

Dear white people!
And by ‘WHITE’ I mean
Other skin colours ,xept we-Blacks;cos
True-talk aint no pure white So…
Dear non-Blacks!
With disdain and provoked mind
I don listen to una arrogance and
Imperialistic boast from day one when
Una dey teach we-Blacks for black soil
Say we past no get toree,dat
We na savages with no history;and
Our eyes and mouths dey for our
Breast and belle
Such  fallacy of myopic reasoning..geez
Ignore dat english..I mean peanut brains
So

Consider dis poem tipex to right una wrongs
Dem say words gimme wings
I say no be lie!,no need to fly visa

Almost white socks and gloves
So that him hand no go touch the black
Board but say to am oyibo

No get me wrong him palle name na
Okokon and malle na affiong
But drenched in a phrase of complacency ‘Efik edi mbakara’ dat is; Efik are Whites

Lines wey Haram like say,
“As far as small white chalk dey ride
On top blaaaaaack board,whites go Always be whites and blacks underdogs
But wait oh!…

Black marker don dey write on Whiteboard ba

And if by any means you forget handicap Or double chance your brain forget other
Names,to avoid  the alpha thunder of
Amadioha from striking you no forget to Ice any;I mean any Black toree  without The sacrifice and sincerity of Our latest Elder statesman like;

The blood of any naija pikin…”
Thank you Jona
