‘Hidden Colours’ :

They should have told us:
To leave the drawings of our people
Blank; bare; pale as they were,
No, not as THEY are.

Because we…
Because we foolishly…
Because we foolishly filled their colourless faces.
Filled their colourless faces with the skin of the poor people of colour;
The oppress-me please,
The weak will of us-
Told in twisted tautological tongues that we are half of a half, of white he and she. 
Truths tabooed by Teacher, a culture-vulture to the 
ebony existence.

They should have told us though…
They should have told us!

Born 400 years old a slave with every damned sketch drawn
With darkened lines, black and bold.
Too much criticism 
Too much controversy
Carried by that black crayon
-crush it!
Crush the shade of the sihouette as it shadows the white lightening sun,
Crush it!
