When you tell us
the gods of our ancestors
are useless , are illegit
and our ways are foul,
yet, all our artifacts
are suffocating in your museums;

When you paint your
milk skin all over
every wall, every magazine
when you make it the
face of every product there is
and call it “normal” skin;

when you continue to turn us against each other,
you have planned this for years.....
so that the black man with the African tongue despises
the black man with your tongue.
you planned this for years,
so that even after independence....
we still answer to you
