A Slap On The Cheek - Poem by kelvin karani

A slap on the cheek
Calls for reciprocation
Says the eye principle

For freedom we must fight
Says the man Fanon
Violence liberates

But they also say
It begets violence
Creating a vicious cycle

And then the man Gandhi
Proposed humanism:
Love thy enemy

The socialist Nyerere
Asked of the eventuality
When one is against a wall

Freedom still never came
The caressing so far used
Hasn’t been arousing enough
