THE BIBLE AND THE GUN

 

The bible, the gun
The white man came with
Both as alibi.
Missionaries they came,
Colonial masters they came.

They came to drench and free us
From the shackles and manacles
Of obnoxious religion and
Ancestral inclination to the white man
God.

They came to take us 
Down the line of slavery
To colonies, from dogs to 
Servants, mediocre Africa milieu
To the civilized western world.

Many rhetorical question 
Running the streams of my
Mind.
Answers lies only in minds
Illuminated by truth.

WHERE IS AFRICA?
I can’t find it
With the bible and the gun
The white man baptised us
From Africa to new life
In westernhood

WHO IS AFRICA?
A lost man? 
A long dead man?
A brainwashed man?
Or maybe,
A man resurrecting from a long
Deadly sleep in western dream.

Oh Bible! Oh gun!
Like a tranquilizing drug
And a vaccine injection 
Africa was broken.
But,
One thing,
One thing still
And will
Always remain ,
BLACK.
