We Remember! Poem by Alouwou Mandjah

We Remember!

Rating: 5.0


After the Earthquake struck Haiti, Pat Robertson
an American pastor made an offensive assertion
that "Haiti signed a pact with the devil"
shame on you Pat, you've reached the medieval level.
Come on fame-less pastor, that's Pat-HECTIC
ill-mannered, shameful, idiotic, bombastic,
hypocritical, illiterate, biased and selfish
as evangelist, your words are so DEVILISH.
Indeed Voodoo was the brotherhood against the blood suckers.
for Haiti became the first Colony to dethrone the slaves' masters.
Through a spiritual gathering as human rights the common goal
in 1804 Haiti became first black independent Nation, ..truth be told.
You said cursed? Yes, Haiti has been for broken Napoleon's chains
and facing the long Historic Embargo, Haiti never had any chance.
Pat be quiet! Silence speaks louder than looted mind
you've turned senile, Mr. Disgraceful one of a kind.
Sense of guilt sometimes exempts weaken sinner soul
But one must pay their dues before they get parole
Pat you're in denial. Haiti has been in desperate poverty
due to dividing concurring Colonialist's CONSPIRACY.
Sir, you've shown the world the opposite of a minister
tell us, is Haiti the only Country facing natural disaster?
What about Earthquake in Antioch, Pakistan, Indian Ocean?
Tohoku, Aleppo, Gujarat, New Zealand, Tsunami in Japan?
What about the devil Sinkholes in Texas, Volcano in Hawaii?
Snow storm in New York, Wildfire in California, Tennessee?
Blizzard in New Jersey, Tornado in Ohio, Flood in Louisiana?
Landslide in Utah, Dust Bowl in Nebraska, Hurricane in Florida?
O, I almost forgot to mention flood, Earthquake in LA
Pat we got you, wake up and may God bless your USA.
Hope your heart find WISDOM, LOVE and PEACE
and REMEMBER, Natural Disaster is not RACIST!

A politically charged dynamo, that strikes through the absurdities of the Christian hypocrisies, you hit Robertson's viciously vacuous comments on one of the worst tragedies to face that country. this poem is a great call and response, that he would not look on the atrocities that befall his own country, but wag his fingers at another nation rather then give a helping hand shows that he is a stain on humanity. Great Poem!

Brave utterances set aside for sober reflection. Really a courageous work of art depicting virtuous hypocrisy, prejudices and bias, colossal misrepresentation of Christianity... Thanks for sharing Alouwou and do remain enriched.
