The New African Talking Drum – A Poem by Tony Marinho

By Tony Marinho Published July 11, 2010

The dreaded new African talking drum

Drums damaging every eardrum

Day, night, its message, a bush fire,

Consuming village to presidential villa

It talks in all 340 tribal tongues

Drumming into dreams, destroying sleep and lungs.

But no one dances in the noisy polluting heat

Of the new African talking drum beat

President to prostitute

Restaurant to research institute

Police to petrol station

Right across the darkened nation

It drums a dirge, mourning

From dusk to dawning,

www – the world wide waking,

As power dies again, again, and again.

Nigeria requires a 100,000Mw revolution in energy

Making every city an electri-City.

To be truly ‘I fine pass my neighbour’

Silence the new African talking drum – the generator.

– Tony Marinho

‘I fine pass my neighbour’ is colloquial for a small family size generator

Engraved

Objection!

The many sided coin and other stories

Bobo learns to fly

Deadly cargo!

The Epidemic

Introducing: The Manopause Man Aka Mr Man O. Pause and the Manopause (Strategies for Communication in Southern Afr)

The victim

    You don’t think the Chinese are making all those infrastructure changes for niggers do you?!? The Chinese are there for land and resources. They are bringing in their own workers for mind work and letting the niggers dig ditches and clean their toilets. They are also flooding nigger markets with cheap Chinese goods, putting the local niggers out of work! When China is done building all those roads, bridges, mines and other improvements, they will take over, as they are doing now. If the niggers get in their way, they will just start exterminating all niggers in Africa.

    Enjoy your new yella massa, nigger! In a few years, you subhumans will be be begging da YT debbil to save your ape asses from the yella debbil! Niggers deserve what happens to them!
