Blood land by Twanda Rolle

Twanda Rolle | June 16th, 2018 | poetry | No Comments

Poem

The Bluebloods have captured our lands
Bleeding dry its lifeline
When the Earth was strong they came in and owned
Gold, diamonds…

The Bluebloods came with their powers
And took the fertile soil
To uproot and plant new ways

They planted different fruits
fruits that bled
exposing ruptured flesh and veins like shredded tyres

and the blue eyes
squint from the glitz of the blood diamond.
