Left For Dead (Racism Cries)

image

Hey Bandar! Hey Habshi, Hey Monkey!
Yes black monkey!!!
I have gotten used to the names
They do not see me as a human
But as something of the class of lower animals
An animal that can talk
And hear their racist insults
I walk with my head lowered
Even amongst little Indian children
Yet I still see them point little fingers
And run ahead just to turn and stare
To see what a black monkey looks like
But all these was nothing compared to when he died
That Indian boy they claimed black people ate
Suddenly I was a cannibalistic black monkey
And I deserved to die too
They were protesting
And I became the unlucky specimen
That was the outlet for their anger and hatred
No one hearkened to my cries
They were blinded in their rage
Their rage for the black symbol
And everything it signified
Left for dead I questioned my humanity
And wondered if being an animal wouldn’t have been better

P.s. This is for everyone that had to suffer because of racism

Dead Black Son (Racism cries)

image

I thought it was dead
That it only existed in the books of history
With no bearing at all
On modern civilization
I didn’t realize how mistaken I was
Until I was in the middle of an angry mob
Where everyone wanted a share of my educated skin
Simply because I was black
And a Muslim too
A double insult on their collective intelligence
My polished diction and clear English intonation
Meant nothing at all
They said blacks were the reason they had no jobs
And Muslims were responsible for their dead families
They said I was an animal that belonged in the jungle
And I had to go back to climbing trees
Or the great beyond was just a step away
I couldn’t have imagined
That a mistaken tea spill
On a white drunkard aggressively rejoicing
Over the Trump’s victory
Would turn a whole crowd of normal looking humans
Into blood thirsty vampires
In the middle of the day
All because of the colour of my skin
Mama, Black is not beautiful here
It’s the colour of death
And the reason you would have to bury shreds
Instead of your beautiful black son

P.s. This is for everyone that has had to suffer injustice based on the colour of their skin
