A Poem by Rico X

My sojourn started
The day I was born
And has carried on
And moved on
Taken a million miles
From the Nile
Kings and Queens
That came from the Motherland
Lost their crowns and scepters
In another land
As cuneiform took another form
Forced to perform
The next chapter
The interlude was brief?
But the grief
Was long lasting
Hair that was straighten
By nuts and fruit
Now has become
Matted and coarse
Intercourse forced
As voices become hoarse
As chariots drawn by horses
Bring laughter
As Kings and Queens
Are reduced to that
Of a jester
Indigenous people
Not seen as equal
As the calls of the Baptist
Will not be heard
Situation needs decapitation
As migration into African Nations
Has us facing extinction
Sphincter muscles tighten
Defecation is heighten
As butt holes are impaled
By poles that pierce black souls
No more Gods to hold or exalt
As salt seeps in the wound
The end is coming soon?
No more praying to Ra or
Where is Ma’at? (Goddess of justice, truth and of order)
In fact
IsIs is not righteous
She too has turned her back
Now forced to pray everyday
To one God
YAHWEH-NISSI "The Lord Our Banner" (Exodus 17:15)
YAHWEH-JIREH: "The Lord Will Provide" (Genesis 22:14,
Forced to walk through the fire
Polytheistic thoughts
Are ripped from the heart
And torn apart as
Monotheistic beliefs
Now cause more grief
As God now has blonde
Hair and blue eyes
It was inevitable that
Ra had to die
Migration and colonization
Killed African Nations
Indigenous no more
Fighting a war
That they can never win
Being tossed in the wind
When will it end?

so many have turned their backs on God...or have done really bad things in his name?

love and peace have been tossed into the wind...and are being carried far from here...

i ask the same question..."when will it end?"
