    A Far Cry From Africa

    A wind is ruffling the tawny pelt
    Of Africa, Kikuyu, quick as flies,
    Batten upon the bloodstreams of the veldt.
    Corpses are scattered through a paradise.
    Only the worm, colonel of carrion, cries:
    'Waste no compassion on these separate dead!'
    Statistics justify and scholars seize
    The salients of colonial policy.
    What is that to the white child hacked in bed?
    To savages, expendable as Jews?
    Threshed out by beaters, the long rushes break
    In a white dust of ibises whose cries
    Have wheeled since civilizations dawn
    >From the parched river or beast-teeming plain.
    The violence of beast on beast is read
    As natural law, but upright man
    Seeks his divinity by inflicting pain.
    Delirious as these worried beasts, his wars
    Dance to the tightened carcass of a drum,
    While he calls courage still that native dread
    Of the white peace contracted by the dead.

    Again brutish necessity wipes its hands
    Upon the napkin of a dirty cause, again
    A waste of our compassion, as with Spain,
    The gorilla wrestles with the superman.
    I who am poisoned with the blood of both,
    Where shall I turn, divided to the vein?
    I who have cursed
    The drunken officer of British rule, how choose
    Between this Africa and the English tongue I love?
    Betray them both, or give back what they give?
    How can I face such slaughter and be cool?
    How can I turn from Africa and live? read more »
