Now, have a teaser of a poem:
Bury me in Africa
If I visit a foreign land
Then fail to come back,
When I have died,
Failing to come back to the land of my birth'
Where my mother's menstrual blood flowed,
Take me, ferry me to Africa.
I grew up in Savannah of Sub Sahara Africa;
Where wasps stung me
Inducing tears from my eyes to fall
To sink down into Africa's soils.
When I labored in the fields
The sun scotched me-
Sweat fell from my skin
And was sucked by Africa.
I sipped out blood from bleeding gums
And spat on Africa's dry footpaths.
These moments, such memories shake me,
Africa is my brooder
And I will be perpetually its son
Bury me in Africa.
