Here we are

Iki Mudiaga-Maxwell Aghogho

Here we are, With our mouth full with cheers And our glasses clicking to health While our heart brimmed with warmth On the wake of our democracy Or, the redemption of our liberty Here we are, Confronting our patriotic duties With so much callosity and Too much negligence With our hearts resolved to ignore the eagle’s eyes While our tummies protrudes As we savour a wine so fine With legs on the broken backs of peasants Here we are, With heart full with resolve to incline Yet their eagle eye set at watch And their lion hands is in determination To clear our proceeds to bit. If we move, when we act They foreshadow, they overcome. So where is the treasured democracy? Where is now the treasured liberty?

Here we are, With heart accelerated towards further deceit (That same old lie) Dancing to the tune of the conspiracy flag Saluting to the talking-drum beats In the most treasured bosoms Here we are in tune with Yes! We can! Yet the darker one, despite all his subversions Still shares with the ideologist a common place Despite his domination of the zoos His own breeds are still breed under captivity For years a conspiracy has been met with Yet we still believe Yet, Yes! We still can! It seems to be revulsion When civilisation height Can’t embrace all hues, tones and pigments.

Here we are, Throwing stones across the great Pacific and Atlantic, Sometimes back towards the “cape of good hopes” With gusto and furry But come to reminisce about this matter Are we done yet? Has there been a time we Truly and fully came to embrace our own similar pigments? Wouldn’t a pigment be laid down? For the cause of his volume? Here we are yet we are still not here.
