Modern Day Slavery

Rating: 4.8

Do you remember a day in colonial era,
when bariers and frontiers imposed on africa.
Reminiscing about that day
when the schools through which i had passed
the examination honours i had gained,
thought me of nothing else but foriegn people

this modern day slavery is
as savage and babaric to that which went before.
It may have ended in a dream,

in reality is like perfume smell wafting round us.

it still happens even today, i never ever seen such evil scattaring and spreading so much, there is so much anger and hatred to our people, that shall never be removed, it always appear to be permanent, and i think i blame colonial slavery, that came to our continent and did as they wished, to be quite specific, we Africans were known to obedient and that resulted in us being exploited The_African_Son
