  • Tell Me How Come

    first_imgBy Ivan Brooks, Sr.Tell me how come you so coldLike a bottle of Club Beer in DecemberReminiscent of the good days of oldWhich most prefer not to rememberMemories of a bittersweet yesterdayThat was characterized by great painsInflicted upon us by coerced child soldiersWho took lives and pulled hell curtainsUpon our mothers, children and elders.Oh small soldier, never will I ever forgetYour bloodshot eyes and your cold demeanorEuphoric soldiers, I know you do regretEspecially since you took the Holy CommunionTell me how come you so quick to forgetWhen you ruled the checkpoints and streetsDemanding your big brothers to genuflectAs you cooked your glaywee and buckle-wheat.Oh Freedom fighters, terrible were your deedsThe thought of which makes me rememberWhen we ate rationed unprocessed beer seedsReminiscent of that fateful day in SeptemberCall it the day I died and came back to lifeWhen I crossed over the mighty St. Paul RiverNursing my wounds, courtesy of your rusty knifeYou used to wound me at the checkpoint in Po River.Tell me how come you no longer remember meLook at the scars stamped to my inner thoughtsIs it because I no longer look the same?I think it’s because Jah turned on the forgiveness light.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
