African Earth

African earth overflowing with bodies
Wisdom denied
dances Black and Beautiful
on the soil of contradictions.

Wisdom denied,
Knowledge subjugated
The soil of contradictions
with mixed emotions and decomposing leaves.

Knowledge subjugated
'Progress is unstoppable'
Mixed emotions, decomposing leaves
reflected in the shadow

'Progress' finds its rhythm
dancing Black and Beautiful
Shadow mirrors back to us
African earth fertile with bodies.
