Edward Kofi Louis (13th October 1961 / Accra, GHANA)
Bred Into You
Bred into you;
And now, killing had been part of yout today.
North Side Gallery!
Making your statements in the name of violence;
And, to lay out your plans.
South Side Gallery!
As seen out there on the News;
Bred into you.
East Side Gallery!
And like roaring lions and evening wolves.
Making an empty show;
Eager to corrupt from the early morning.
West Side Gallery!
Bubblegum, bubble, gum, bulb, blue, gem, glum;
But, violence is no answer to peace.
