    Description:
       living in south africa at the time of laws aimed at racial segregation, we were fed education that was aimed at teaching usto feel inferior to other races. our fathers tried hard to deprogamme us but they were like snakes trying to bite one last time but the poison was gone and probably forever

    they come in the form of
    bantu education Act
    danger of black power
    with powdery white toes
    like disembowelled scarecrows
    we be standing aimlessly
    in the middle of this field
    while they nibble at whatever modicum
    of identity leftover for my little baby sister
    tomorrow many more will come
    it will start over again
    their blindness to my presence
    their nibbling
    mouthful curses
    their deafness to my shouts, moarns and screams

      And here I living nice and comfortably in the U.S. of A. totally unaware that there could possibly be any racism left in the world. I feel for you my sista, I really do. I'm from West Philadelphia myself and there has been alot of kids comming to my school from places like Siarleon and Hadi. I say that to say I've only just started to hear about the turmoil that certain parts of Africa is in.
    Maybe someday things will change, maybe one day you'll try to change somethings. But until that day comes keep on writting.

      Strong. I can't pretend to know how this abomination feels but i can sympathise. This poem shows that you see through their primitive lies and I admire that. Anger is well placed but not necessary, these foolish venues will only succeed in destroying themselves. Forgive them for their ignorance because it is only them they will successfully defeat. This is a proud piece and I respect it greatly. The imagery is right on, they nibble at their own disillusions.
