A critique of commerce driven tokenism! St Naija writes to right!
A poem to mark the making of the female Thor and the Black Captain America.
I exist without your consent,
Thrive without your meaningless rhetoric,
I have never needed your smile to stand tall,
Never need your nod to be all
I was created and designed to be
You can’t define me in recycled dregs of burn-out or
Lack of creativity.
If you aren’t brave enough
To discover me,
No one’s giving you a prize for this
Half-baked redeemer fight,
Look away in shame
Like you always have,
Truth will find a way
She always has.
