Poetry corner


from the mother continent
victims overshadowed
to the ones now troubled
vulnerable globe at hand

sour sorrow makes
sweet sense now
past tears our gain
rain from above

follow that tweet
digital know how
worst fears sweet
bees to their hive

mere words on a page
divas angels on wings
an act afro mid stage
words lords of rings

as i watch the children play
wondering why we stop to
maybe it is the world’s way
falsehood embraced as true.

Poem by Isaac Bokaba
