OIL SPILLS KILL: To the People of Ogoniland and all of Nigeria.


To the People of Ogoniland and all of Nigeria.

A Poem for my distant brothers and sisters.

Black gold liquid flows, turning green into black death.

Puts green into Black hands of greed & corporations  outside the Naija nation.

Shell, Chevron and BP STOP the destruction and GREED!

Black smoke bellows upon  tops of red, orange and yellow flames of fiery whilst THOSE without

go w/o and the fiery in their teary eyes tells the story.

THEY shout and scream and militants carry out raids

NOT on Entebbe, But on mechanical monsters of the seas

Standing firmly at sea while IT’S fangs pierce deep into the depths of Mother Nigeria sucking her dry.

And why?

One word: GREED!

About artikleblak

Artikleblak is a panoramic color-consciousness of digital media connecting the African Diaspora throughout the world. This world is a massive environment and our images and stories and concerns are spread to sparingly throughout the planet and digital terra. People of color comprise 4/5th of the world's population. Yet we have to Google search and channel surf and scour the event calendars to find ourselves, whether it be a person, place or thing. We should nevermore let oceans, languages, religions, cultures or man-made boundaries partition us. Our humanity is to powerful to remain fragmented, lets make it ONE again. Sincere thanks, Artikleblak
