A Sour Day - Poem by Jacques Sprenkie Mateya

Singing a silent song in language of ernegy
It comes out shy
Look! At it braches
Lenging eyes down
Cloudy 3rd March 1986
Born in Vinigar days
and we are tired of lemon

Our land is helpless
Joy is rare
Teas are floody
Falling like summer rain
Flood of blood
Corpse lying down
Like headless chicken, slapped and stepped

Remove my black skin
It is an assassination of colour
Craving for remedy
Someone! God come down to our rescue
Enemy is Government of a day
Darkness a token of suffering

    a good poem that needs a edit..ernegy is a typo, and the syntax needs some work, e.g.
    God came down to our rescue, words like Corpse need an article You write well, keep working! (Report) Reply

    Enemy is Government of a day,
    great line, depicting the brutality
    of some regimes.
    Good work, keep writing about subjects
    that inflame your passions. (Report) Reply
