Children of Xenophobia

By Mbizo CHIRASHA, World BEYOND War, July 26, 2020


Children eating bullets and firecrackers
Beggars of smile and laughter
Silent corpses sleeping away fertile dreams
Povo chanting new nude wretched slogans
Overstayed exiles eating beetroot and African potato
Abortions and condoms batteries charging the lives of nannies and maids
Children of barefoot afternoons and un-condomized nights Sweat chiseling the rock of your endurance
The heart of Soweto and Darfur still beating like drums Violence fumigating peace from this earth.
