Wegolonyo Erick Face Poems
- 1. Beautiful One
Sister you look super
Your face is a baboon's baby
- 2. Cry! Beloved Africa
Your children, prostitutes are they?
Bastards are your descendants.
The wet bleeds of that starved face.
Mother Africa, dry not your rivers, cry!
- 3. Holy! Holy! Holy!
Holy, Holy, Holy: Lord God of Hosts;
We praise thee, O God, the King of all kings.
Lord, let thy mercy lighten upon us,
Thou art Mighty Father everlasting!
- 4. Life
I'm given up for you
You are true
Though so soon becomes an illusion
In your face yesterday
