Wall-apart

Wall-apart

“Adama” I called you

Do you remember…?

When we were younger

How happy we were

Biding a low-bye

Even when daddy and mummy

Watched with a questioning eye-brow

 

“en” You replied

 

Do you know why…?

I searched for my neatest clothes

Anytime you were around me

Gentrification in action

Reasons to the little B-girl

Smiling and enticing me

To look the very best

 

Do you remember…?

All of the things we said

Through the tall fence

Calling names, laughing and gibing

Fun became boring

We were deprived

Deprived by the walls.
