	FROST DRENCHED COLONIALISM

	By Bedros Afeyan

	At night, fanned by the light
	Of an African Moon
	Glistening instrument of splendor
	Make a lion roar
	While Aids devours the continent
	Chewing inside its rhythms

	Instruments of joy
	Partisan fractions
	Fumble fragrant futures
	Wind, string, percussion
	Strong hips,
	Execrated praise,
	Hosannas

	As prostitutes and babies default on their faults
	Gazelles run and lions race
	Witness Western Africa drown
	In the drought of UN observers
	Blue handkerchiefs and ineptitude
	Serving as their warning flags
