interesting to think that an alien knows which stuff is valuable to humans and can make us kill one another . . . great, powerful poem dear Mum C =)
Nananom were the Lords
When the aliens came as explorers
Riches turned their heads around
And they aimed to be the kings
So Nananom were subdued
Isn’t it funny that salt were used as toffees
To make our Lords tongue licking children?
Isn’t it funny that lone guns were used
To make men feel like servants of rude gods?
Isn’t it funny that men were caught in cages
And sent on crosses on nauseating waters?
All lives shattered
All tears harvested
All the blood of our land fetched
As thoughts of selfishness pushed into heads
Caused them to drum in hatred
And contributes to our plight today
Even in prayers for better days,
I weep for the black land so defiled
