Poem: Yellow Children by James Ademuyiwa

0

(for Northern Nigeria)

 
babies who die here
are yellow, insignia to what is
called 'not good' where I am from
 
those who live beyond crawling
end up becoming bones: evidences
of insurgency 
 
we who tell the tales too
are walking ghosts
 
so, where are the children
in this place?
