Situation - Poem by Edward Kofi Louis

The ball!
Rolling along,
Kicked here and there! !
Like the muse of the sphere,
With the ways of the atmosphere;
Having 'Lagos' in Portugal,
And the Portugese brought the name (Lagos) to Nigeria,
Exploiting the Country in the name of Slavery and,
Taking away their Natural Resources;
In the field of the Game,
With the records of history;
Exposing the ways of mankind on earth.

Topic(s) of this poem: country, history, name, slavery

    This is how some of the so called civilized nations treated others nations, in the past. We too were a victim to them and the history is extremely bitter and ugly. I salute your valor to have said this to the world. Thank you Edward for sharing thoughts. (Report)Reply
