THE ‘NOT SLAVE’ RAIN – Ashraff Adeyemo

The ‘not slave’ rain hundred black coffins
For hundreds of dark days
Four hundred black bodies
fill up a black case
See you praying to God
but what will help is the pain
tears the land with your cry
and dry up after this rain
They will, and not may
Eyes glow like burnt clay
they’ve seen their wives died
they’ve seen their mum raped
so let not the drums rhyme
let not the song sane
Many acts are not crime
For the ‘not slave’ is unchained.

I am a lover of computers. I love writing even though I do not believe in it anymore because of my society’s backwardness on the culture. I love critical thinking and the art in using words.
