So They Think! - Poem by Ongom Aloti Adero jr.

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

I loathed
i mock
i soothed

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

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,

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,

one love!
so they think!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

how we get to think of the past and try to relate it to the present, sometimes getting engulfed in the emotional spits to an extent that we fail to realise we walking the same foots of our great ones!
