Cursed African - Poem by Temajung michael tanjang

His glow saw Africans in mirth
His spry saw Africans in expectations
He was indeed Zeus
And Africa was in destitute of Zeus for her ego
For Apollo's efforts needed to be backed from Olympus
Africa……..Africa……..Africa

The blow came unexpected
Africa gasped for breath
For Zeus had fired at Apollo in a thrice
From Olympus with a dark arrow

Alas! ! Alas! ! Alas! !

With blood stained lips,
Apollo Slept and Africa with him
For Zeus' blow was dark and red
Africa……..Africa…..America

Hitherto, Africa sleeps, to rise up not
Strangled by a body that carried her blood

Topic(s) of this poem: sad, sadness, sorrow
