The Anglophile Neroes

The Anglophile Neroes

We bury our history and origin
We imitate imitations
We assume aliens in our land
We tear our lives in worry
Brimmed with ennui
Our language is in oblivion
We boost with others tongue
Not knowing
A burrowed tongue is burrowed head
Language is culture in words
Therefore, let us live it
It is the hub and crux of our being
So let us cling to it

    what a poetic way to refute neocolonialism … absolutely philosophical …

  4. Tasty, Well done.
    Correct ‘we boost with others tongue’

  5. Exceptional work; forgoing originality is severing our ties with the root of our being. Good use of language too.

  6. Correct message.
    Well done, sunny.

  7. two words.

    Good work.

  8. Such limitations of imitation! I am a proponent of glolocalization, and opponent of globalization. Who I am, must be a component.

  9. Another Negritude poet?

    Great work. Very succinct.

    Loss of self is a very bad thing!
    Let me agree also that language is a medium with which culture and tradition is further boosted.
