Black Messiah

Storm is brewing in Nairobi
Tear-gas canisters are lobbed
The city is in riot
Stones dash like quivers

Running battle is staged
On city platform
Between the police
And University students

On a skyscraper
A black messiah looks on
Weeping blood

The black messiah whispers:
When will salvation begin
For how long will I be crucified on a wood?

C) Lorot Salem 2010
