Treasure Island

David Aoloch Bion

(1976 / Republic of South Sudan)

An Aa Pax Day


The most divine day the most human day
On an aa aa aa aa aa aa aa pax day
The holy Verse in the Bible was read
The holier verse in the Quran was recited
The holiest verse in the Yacth was quoted
The three books were opened as
The three witness of oaths of armistic & commitment
At zero hour the drums beaten the bell rang
And one minute of singing was observed
Across the skin-across the tongues
Everyone sang unknown song before across the country
They danced, jumped and many timed-someersault
The candles lit the bonfires lit.

Before an ink dry on the dossier
The fists unfolded for bleeding & dying to stop
The mouths smiled for venom to evaporate
The red eyes turned greenest as olive leaf
The dark hearts changed whitest as Gabriel hair
The dead forgotten the scares forgiven
The foes first luncheoned in one plate
The birds perched the animals lied down at last
The trees leafed the grasses sprouted
The whole Sudan risen to it own
Knees from blood and dark ashes
And revitalized and quintessenced on Jan 9


Note, i wrote it when the peace was signed between the government of Sudan and rebell Sudan People Liberation Movement /Army [SPLMA on January 9 2005 that ended 21 year war

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
