Ils Sont Venus - Poem by Adisa Oludare Enitan

Ils sont venus
the stealers of culture and heritage
in more dynamic ways
with new apparatus and agencies
to cart away our treasures
our lifelong legacies

Ils sont venus
in a polished goodwill
to unconsciously enslave us
rob us of our wealth
sip dry out intellectual abilities
and flee like the previous time

Ils sont venus
to use our very own ways and resources
fight their geographical way of supremacy

Topic(s) of this poem: colonialism, slavery
