Second Colonization Poem by Kingsley Egbukole

Second Colonization

Rating: 5.0


By deceit and coercion
Is the colonization first
By wilful submission
Is the colonization second

The culprit is football
Premier league, EUFA and Europa
Are duly implicated
The craze is feverish and maddening
Where the good spirit of football
Is turned into the monster of gangsterism.

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
The craze for western football among African youths is frightening. The claim to be members of certain clubs, urge, quarrel and even fight and injure themselves for these clubs that do no give a damn about who they are or where they come from.

The game is been taken to an uncomfortable level. These boys don't allow you enjoy the game with their quarrelling and fighting. Thanks for your comment.
