Misconceived by Maqhawe Mpofu

“Mama please don’t forget to conceive me...”
“Unconceived one, where you want to go there are too many rivers,
Flooded with hate, disunity, poverty, and innocent blood, no more graveyards,
Neighbour is killing neighbour’s son for his father did not pass him a snuff,
Sons are raping mothers...”

“Mama please don’t abort me, I already have a mission in progress,
Africa will flow in one drop...”
“Unborn one, you are just the definition of rape and...”

Mama is lying in front of me, writhing and screaming in pain...
Am standing in front of her, pulling up my trousers...
Pulling the trigger...
Her blood soils the earth...
