400 years - Ibrahim Muniru

For 400 years, you have brainwashed us
through your education
to make us fools.
For 400 years, you have worked
to make us look inferior.
For 400 years,
you have eaten our corn
and looked upon us with scorn.
You have treated us badly on slave ships
for 400 years.
You have cracked your whip
and made our blood run cold
for 400 years.
We are still alive, strong, healthy and united.
We shall lead ourselves to the land of liberty,
where we shall live fulfilling lives.
We shall be free and leave behind these horrible
400 years of torture,
for the black man
never dies.
