Rookie (Lira, Uganda, East Africa!)

So They Think!


That it was,
Was a lie.
Spoken of ill
That fate sought
Slavery!

I loathed
i mock
i soothed

Unspringed
Yet eternally sprouting,
To greens yielding eternally watered
Fresh of as of pyramids dawn twinkle,
That fate sought,
Knowledge!

A likened to memories ancient,
Of languages spoke
Egyptian mummies twigged!
That self structured,
That self ruined,
That self admired in from a distance
That fate sought,
Greatness!

That so is history
That told is hatred sown
That believed is enmity reaped

How equal that past sought
Black and white!
How superior thou stand!
How ugly thou stretch!
Colour they say,
wealth they preach,
Pain we reap,
That fate sought,
Pity!

one love!
so they think!

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
