(A new poem by Hama Tuma)
Faces are white hiding dark hearts,/
Where racism thrives./
A fortunate pot/
Can break a stone/
Traitors and cowards are hailed as heroes/
The real patriots forgotten
in prison holes and labor camps.
Israel has become racist towards Africans.
Aberash Berta has been disappeared
More than twenty years
But who cares for that
Attention is on others
A few years or months behind bars and already
Filth is revered, treason applauded
Cheap wine in a new bottle feted
The bad cook is still in place
but the stove changed
to no avail.
Time changes they said
But the country is grounded.
