Askew

Walking through a village in southwest Nigeria (c) 2016 

God, you made us so strong
Intricate and complex 
Us, your work of art 
Brightest jewels in your crown
Till we started etching long lines on your face

God, you are not wrong
I am telling you what you already know
Us, your work of art
Sharpest thorns in your crown
Rulers of a sooty subspace 

God, you made us so strong 
Intricate and complex
Us, your work of art
Loudest assholes at your barbecue

We are what you made us - askew
