ENDANGERED SPECIE by Emeyazia Iwediokpulu Chukwudi

The darker your skin
The more suspicious you become
I remember vividly while germinating
They said the Devil is black.

As if that isn’t satisfactory
They came up with…

Black-Panther,Black-Box,Black-Maria,
Black-Market,Black-Chya,Black-Widow,
Black-Friday and Black-Sunday.

Is it a crime to be Black?
If you’ve issues with my Colour
Then go and ask Heaven,

There is a limit a bottle can swallow water
Sometimes the presence of silence
Isn’t the presence of the fearsome,

We’re lovers of peace
Live and lets live
The Blackman is born a soldier
Oh! Yes I’m a Nigeria Soldier,

Stop persecuting me
Stop persecuting us

I possess a limit but…

Live and lets live
Egbe belu Ugo belu
Nke si igbe ya egbekwene
Akwa ya nku!
