Black Madonna

Found Her

A Madonna, Black

In the playground

Next to

The church ground

In between

The chicken shop

And the housing estate

She guarded the sacred water

Which we sniffed

Did not drink

Waiting on health & safety

Knowing that She

Enters us pilgrims

Regardless

Once the road has disappeared

Once the path is all done
