Biafra

Rating: 4.8

A land of old.
Made out of gold.
Its sheer uniqueness unshared.
Inhabitants dwell in darkness.
Light seen but unrealized.
Hope dashed upon smartness.
Smartness filled with mischief.
Mischief from the thief.

The land of gold come from a source.

The source being the cause.

I remember first learning about Biafra way back in the 1970s when the English photographer Don McCullim published his photos in an American magazine. He was behind the line of combat but Nigerian troops were closing in. There was abject suffering in those photos I've never forgotten. And that is exactly the strength of your poem: the cause of Biafra is kept alive in your words, the cry for justice and an end to oppression rings true. This is a poem about keeping hope alive until hipe is a reality.
