Black February Month In America

                             In the USA, Black History month is celebrated

In February, the month with the shortest days

Meanwhile in my world, I celebrate year-round, every day

In my heart: Black History. I’m absolutely delighted

To the point of being ridiculously amazed

I’m laughing, giggling. This is taking my breath away

In reality, we need thirteen months to celebrate

Black History. Be mindful that everything started

In Africa. However, I am saying ‘thank you’ anyway

There is no need to say obviously more or elaborate

Mankind must be pompously and joyfully celebrated

On a daily basis. There will be no world without Africa

We all must hear the message: Africa is the motherland

Africa is the mother of history. You might not want to stand

With me. Please prove me wrong. Show that you understand

The saga.
