“Howdy, scholars! Welcome to class.
What colours don your country’s flag?”
“Green, yellow, blue & white!!”
Márçia wasted no time.
“Red! With a white cross,”
“Red, yellow and green,
Plus a black star ever shiny,”
“And you, Kolade?”

Became the object of long stares.
“Green. Blood. Green,”
Muttered the hollow voice, rich with such glum & agony untold.
