Poem of the Week: Jewel of Africa


By Eru Kobe Godwin

Credit: freeblooddiamonds.blogspot.com

She’s boarded with the Atlantic from the South

Mother of a Black Nation, from Creation

She held arrays of generation

Her skin is painted green and white

But her soul is in colours

Her offspring’s were traded for slaves

Centuries pass for freedom the crave

She’s had trials and wars

Part of her is been scavenged by vultures

The milk from her gland created a deceitful dynasty

Filled with greed, treachery and envy

Gluttony in their blood, lies in their breathe

Promises from frail words

Are lost, like shadows in the dark

But in peril and cloudy days, she glows

She is loved and called Nigeria

Even the heaven knows
