Art_Daro_Twistin Circles
Original Art by uThanDiLe(c)2013


lost in wat we do
coz we’ve forgotten our roots
marchin’ fanatically to alien imported rules
coz we think they real cool
only to luk bak at tha mirror
realize we resemble copy cartoons
internalizin’ tha illegitimacy of our creed…
we’ve evolved into strange lukin’ things
talented caricatures dancin’ to foreign beats
beauty stripped from our masterpiece
now a culturally malnourished species
wallowin’ in tha virtual virus of inferiority
severely entrenched ba tha colonial disease
condition easily cured ba a simple vaccine:

    I lyke wat iz said here. Having been transplanted twice in my life – not by choice/plan, I can identify some having to find friends from home, but notice the difference we have become. And if I am way off, originality is always needed. And I enjoyed reading this outloud.

    I loved the copy cartoons bit–and you must perform this, because it’s got such a great rhythm to it. Nice art too. 🙂 Thanks for sharing.
