-burden

burden
-burden
does it break your back

that I carry ancestors on mine?

-W.E.

why does culture bother you my friend?
is it because the sun does not touch your facethat you must deny everyone Gods grace?
perhaps because winds don’t cool your temperament
no one else feels gusts – you assume

the past time of tea
is not enough to quench your soul
the ceremony
that can otherwise make Japanese whole

you perplex me why my ancestry
something that belongs to me
can be the source of your misery

gnash teeth, brace your heart
point your spear
worse than a witches hunt

where is he,
beard, melanin full, accent thick,
eyes of war

where is she
only twerk worthy, ebony fantasy, she’s too veiled from me
let me liberate her with my placid inability

this is not your country
colour person, white as snow or dark as night
now we’re given the green light
to hate you with everything we got
to haplessly fight

rats out of the dark
scurrying to eat stale crumbs
you haven’t risen
still in the dark ages
still in the slums

the history of England will never change
a world of colonisation,
the only people left to burden with white globilisation
are the ones who are your blindest followers
who have taken well to immunisation
deprivation
humiliation
thinking they’re free under the banner of imperial sterilisation
little do they know,
they’re the most shackled of nations.

i still don’t understand
why someone’s culture,
name,
race,
colour,
religion,
gender,
preference in general,
could stifle  you
and make you such a burden on yourself
all that dead weight you carry
can’t be good for your health

-W.E.

Ironic that a country that has not left a stone unturned,
to steal even the grain of sand from underneath it,
who’s monarchy cannot ever be satiated,
ever on a diet of spoils of war,
is now left with one more country to devour….

Itself.

You stole poetry, that’s not yours
art, that’s not yours
medicine, that’s not yours,
resources, that’s not yours
oil, that’s not yours
land, that’s not yours
minerals, that’s not yours
science, that’s not yours
history, that’s not yours
religion, that’s not yours
And now that the owners of all those things are in your country living,
Ironically not asking to collect what’s theirs,
You claim,
this country….

it’s not yours

Fuck off to your dark ages, with your white supremacy,
Hell, you never left.
