The West stigmatizes Her
She gave me my primal breath and key to life
And anointed me in dainty alabaster ointment,
Ancestral fibrous roots fused nature in nurture.
I quest for that refreshing Atlantic sea breeze,
As the unadulterated Olorshoro river runs deep
Of crafted chip from a supernal assembly line:
The West stigmatizes her, a land of disrepute,
Where barbarism, weird violence bloom bright:
Coniferous Mountain, blooming ‘blood diamond’
But who initiated that latent, endemic violence,
Who loads their deep pockets in bloody profits?
Pundits said that God has left dear motherland.
A blind-leprosy beggar with outstretched hands,
With telling and fixed eyes still expecting alms:
Some neighbors passed by on the opposite side.
Iron ore, diamond, gold abound, but not to share
But a Samaritan showed her utmost compassion,
As experience echoes: “rise up and walk upright.”
