so needed at the gates of Jerusalem Damascus

sunrise over damascus

a million dead

how many poison gas dead

dead is dead

no matter how

blood bones is blood bones

a million dead

bullets bombs poison gas no matter

what mind game is this

dead are dead

no matter how

no matter why

we cry for syria

we cry

sunrise over damascus.

Poem for Kiilu Nyasha, Revolutionary Woman Supreme

Poem for Kiilu Nyasha, Revolutionary Woman Supreme







There are those who talk revolution
those who make revolution
With heart mind soul body blood sweat tears
Every ounce of being
Every step revolutionary step
 
Unchain the chained
Liberate captives.from dungeon
Free the global wage slaves
No matter no family
No matter no walk
Crawl revolution
Kiilu
Like Mumia
Chained yet free
what's your excuse
 
Kiilu chained in big yard
Yet free to free unfree
Long live revolutionary sista
Kiilu Nayasha.
Black Panther Woman
Harriet Tubman Woman
Kiilu would have freed more slaves
if they had known they were slaves!
