Africa, My Ancient Home! - Poem by Eche Ononukwe

I met my lov’r on the day I was born;

I admir’d her splendid beautiful face;

she dress’d in expensive cosmetics

all over her gold’n body, and I said:

O Africa, you’re beautiful to the brim;

your illuminating night on my skin

wickles like diamonds and gold,

your eyes in the sky make my skin

thick’r like savannah leath’r

than the spring, winter and autumn of Europe.

O African, you’re the true home of all creatures!
