Letter my Unborn

 

The Trnsformation Train

 

Virgin Of Africa

Dark, lovely and beautiful
Rounded hips; wonderful
Pointed for potent feasts;
Those succulent breasts,
Heavily beaded, her waist
Her neck and her wrist.

Her tunnel, tiny and long
For the funnel such strong,
In the forest, for firewood
Within, far; the neighbourhood
At the stream to fetch water
She returns earlier than later.

Single; she is a pride
Married; she turns a bride
Pregnant; she is busy
Nursing, she is never lazy
Polygamous, she builds ladder
Widowed, she works harder.

How unfortunate she gets torn
When once, war strikes
First, broken is her horn
Killed, those she likes
Abduction she faces
Destruction she embraces.

Hunger becomes her twin
Starvation, her companion
Religion, she cannot win
Culture, turns her champion
Tradition her only inheritance
O Virgin of Africa.

Enslaved with hard labour
Household imprisonment
Battered, beyond martyrdom
Mortgaged beyond boredom
Raped, abused in the harbour
Virgin Of Africa; a monument.
