Richard Arop Ceasar, Juba Poet of 1970-1980

I have un-dominant blood To go and whip The Assembly Speakers.I lack the wizards poison So that I may Poison the African leaders With jur blindness

Richard Arop Ceasar        

Our contestants
From the unknown horizon
The moon comes
Washed by the evening rain
So from that moment People know
There is a new moon.
 
Our contestants
They look alike
Wherever they may come
What they do
Are even un-chameleonic
Under the blanket;
In the forest
At war
And in unity.
They move around
Like the whirling wind
With bug-full
Of fried seeds
On the rocky soil
They dig
And the fertile soil
They own.
They bring hope
To the poor
They welcome the sick
With cup-workable plans
They cross to civilization
They proclaim.
The village tax payers
They nullify flat
And they are lured to cast their votes
In the un-predicated hope
But alas’.
In a minute they are forgotten
Until when,
Next is another election.
In the legislative tukul
They play,
The unknown noise of the drum
To it,
The poor dance.
I have un-dominant blood
To go and whip
The Assembly Speakers.
I lack the wizards poison
So that I may
Poison the African leaders
With jur blindness
 
The contestants
With nobody’s debts
And withered hands
So that they become unable
To climb
The public platform.
By Richard Arop Ceasar (From a collection of poems published in the Heritage Magazine 1970-1980)
