Edward Dzonze Poems
The Black Teacher

Question Of Note: Why? -new-
We heard them singing from a distance and our hearts shuddered of fear. We saw them taking charge towards us, a mob of youths dressed in sponsored t-shirts
The Day After
How many songs did i sing which brought about this aphony? How many songs did i dance to

I've been holding on to a toy gun as my shield of defence, tired of its unnecessary weight, threw it away

If you were not at my college, this way to my college please Maybe i better close one eye
Cassanova On The Bedside

Their faces had no semblance of Ubuntu
except of course their skin
