Black Scribes by Paul Koomson

Oh, how I wish

The Bible was written by a Black man,

An African or some coloured people

Then they would have been divinely inspired

To be the heralds of the Creator's will,

Our creator's grand plan, His ways,

The divine rules of the ultimate maker

Who has always been

Blacks would have been the scribes

And the Dark Continent the cradle

Of improved Judaism

Or maybe it was modernised

What then would the world's response have been

Could the dark arena have emitted light

To all the universe

Wonder is the response

Perhaps the heathens would have been Israelites

No! Forget not,

That time is too remote

Well, they were god-open but God-remote

Africa knew nothing and could not document

What about the Pharaoh's land?

Leave that one

What if Africa is freed of the double bind

From the rulers of our rulers,

From the monster rulers of the states,

The auto-images of the fiend.


The Bible may have been written by Africans.
