WE WEAVE MAT (by Nwilo Bura-Bari Vincent “Salute to Bori 2012)

Salute To Bori

Salute To Bori

This is one poem selected from Nwilo Bura-Bari Vincent “Salute to Bori” just published.

We weave mat

While their men weave war songs

We weave mat

When they weave pains with gongs

We weave mat

To pay a bill

While they hang us with no will

We weave mat

They go mad

This poem was selected from Nwilo Bura-Bari Vincent’s just published anthology  “Salute to Bori”.
