Verses by JulietKego: Panama Palava
Fair strangers
balkanized
our soul (or so tried)
and our sons;
brothers from our clan
knurled and minced
our muscled hearts
then drank up the blood
that flowed to give us life
fair and dark,
we cannot tell them apart
both raped our valleys
and pillaged our earths.
 
(C) Juliet Kego Ume-Onyido
