Mutabaruka – Dis Poem Lyrics

This poem
Shall speak of the wretched sea
That washed ships to these shores
Of mothers cryin for their young
Swallowed up by the sea
This poem shall say nothin new
This poem shall speak of time
Time unlimited time undefined
This poem shall call names
Names like lumumba kenyatta nkrumah
Hannibal akenaton malcolm garvey
Haile selassie
This poem is vexed about apartheid rascism fascism
The klu klux klan riots in brixton atlanta
Jim jones
This poem is revoltin against 1st world 2nd world
3rd world division man made decision
This poem is like all the rest

This poem will not be amongst great literary works
Will not be recited by poetry enthusiasts
Will not be quoted by politicians nor men of religion
This poem s knives bombs guns blood fire
Blazin for freedom
Yes this poem is a drum
Ashanti mau mau ibo yoruba nyahbingi warriors
Uhuru uhuru
Uhuru namibia
Uhuru soweto
Uhuru afrika
This poem will not change things
This poem need to be changed
This poem is a rebirth of a peopl
Arizin awaking understandin
This poem speak is speakin have spoken
This poem shall continue even when poets have stopped writin
This poem shall survive you me it shall linger in history
In your mind
In time forever
This poem is time only time will tell
This poem is still not written
This poem has no poet
This poem is just a part of the story
His-story her-story our-story the story still untold
This poem is now ringin talkin irritatin
Makin you want to stop it
But this poem will not stop
This poem is long cannot be short
This poem cannot be tamed cannot be blamed
The story is still not told about this poem
This poem is old new
This poem was copied from the bible your prayer book
Playboy magazine the N. Y. Times readers digest
The C. I. A. Files the K. G. B. Files
This poem is no secret
This poem shall be called boring stupid senseless
This poem is watchin you tryin to make sense from this poem
This poem is messin up your brains
Makin you want to stop listenin to this poem
But you shall not stop listenin to this poem
You need to know what will be said next in this poem
This poem shall disappoint you
This poem is to be continued in your mind in your mind
In your mind your mind
