Africa: A Thought. December 2017

Posted: December 20, 2017 in Uncategorized

We all,
Like soaked pages
Of a once-great African novel
Sacred leaves of this sacrilege
We all.

  1. The author wrote…
    The printer printed….
    The publisher published…
    The novel was sold…
    But the librarian, who should know the value of the novel most, saw fit only its use as paper to be burnt…
    Those seeking, needing, wanting warmth thought not to ask what the source of the heat was, so desperate was their need… Our need… We all…

    These are the words this thought invokes in me…
