A Broken Dignity

In Wolof

I heard your name is dignity

Why did they change it?

I ask

The birds seemed to answer

With their songs from the sky

But I couldn’t hear them

Goree

Did they keep your dignity?

Your huts held your sons captive

Nailed chains

Off to the unknown

Where was your dignity?
