Anywhere But Here

Exodus bound
Senegambia down
rivers of dignity leaking
From Fouta Djallon
out of Banjul’s mouth
sailing listing creaking
Culture history music art
left in the scupper’s wash
Bodies delivered with flaming heart
all history the cost
Commerce of thralls conscripted
fed on diets of fear
Future beyond unscripted
and anywhere but here
