Re: USA Africa Dialogue Series - Fragments Of Poetic Thoughts (37)

I am confused,
I see pictures,
I hear voices
but i already know,
for quite a while now,
that my cold logic
is not a match for cunning
Photoshop defeats my philosophy
white can be black;
and black can be anything.

My brother,
I am really confused
Democracy is terrible business:
a voice can be presidential
even when the body is missing!

All hail our disembodied President!
All hail Nigeria's democracy!

A voice Speaks.
"The President
From vacation speaks",
The select few
Adeshina sings with them.

Dear Adeshina,
How do you know
That that voice
Have presidential body?
