Poems guma guma land

guma guma land

 

Escape from Zimbabwe

dream of freedom

driving flight

across a river

over razor wire

into the new democracy

into guma-guma land

and the defiling touch

of groping fingers

clutching at crotches

the dream of freedom

gang raped

robbed

murdered.

Escape from Zimbabwe

into guma-guma land

land of lost humanity

the horror, the horror

at the heart of darkness.
