Accusations Upon Accusations
Consid’r what I see here on earth
by Eche Ononukwe
with my God-giv’n bifocals,
eyeing those in black and those in green,
arm’d with weapons of warfare,
snatching away our rights,
and detaiing us in their maggots-infect’d cells.
They refuse us a statement,
But investigations, they claim to have made,
and unbalanc’d, they accuse us by the plaintiffs’ statements,
forging accusations upon accusations against us,
refusing a bail to us,
and our own people, from seeing us:
food, they make us taste not
unless we oil their itching palms.
