Coastline Crowns

Stay away from this coastline
keep your hands off my family
and your doctrines from the young ones
go back to your pit
infection does not bode well here
ministers are hereby quarantined
a prophetic vision from on high
home remedy and healing salve for contagion
call upon the ancestors to undo this folly
call upon ourselves to rebuke this folly

During the Official Black History Month (cuz face it, every month deserves Black History) and beyond, this blog will honor people who demonstrated critical elements of the Black / African experience with commemorative poems. This poem pays homage to prophetess Kimpa Vita of the Kongo, who interrogated and rejected white Christianity; the first to opt for Black Jesus.
