Black problems and the democracy by Hazel Tobo

Hazel Tobo | Jul 8th, 2017 | a poem a day challenge, poetry | 1 Comment

Poem

Black problems are in English,
Black problems are heavy,
Oozing with pain and tears,
Chilli and alcohol.

Black problems are death,
Broken promises,
Missing fathers,
Drunk mothers,
Hungry stomachs,
Knives
Poison
Drugs
Poverty
Free education.

Black problems are Cold as winter
As hard as rock,
Greater than mountains
Black problems are blood spillage,
Dying,
English.
