Talk About Dawn

Francis Mkwapatira

Mzuzu University, Malawi.


Dawn was then,

When majestically we went in and out of the hut

Homogenity binding us with one vein

Anakubala Chanting Mwali praises by heart

Before becoming psychopaths of colonisation.

Then were we civilised in twilight

Like madmen, for the  impostors culture we ran in assimilation.

But, Wasn’t Our dignity robbed, and we left with a hurting heart?

Don’t we wander as societies mordenised, yet withiout recognition?

Aren’t we hankering for heterogeneity and gluttonism?

Now rises dusk along with inhumanisation

For globalisation is due, with inevitable socio-racial fate

Could we still do away with this inhumanisation?

Shall it be by the eurocentricism being thrown away?
