The Click

There was a click!
The click was what made I and I tick.
In the speech, culture, way of life, connecting community.
There was a click!
The click was what made I and I tick.

Of all humans, the oldest DNA is of Africans.
The pygmies among them, to their own tune they dance.
Their speech has the click. So still does their culture.
Advancing with life, because on death preys the vulture.
And destruction and death came. Downpression and pain.
After it, less of the original click seemed to remain.

There is a click!
The click is what makes I and I tick.
In the speech, culture, way of life, connecting community.
There is a click!
The click is what makes I and I tick.

African retentions among Africans enslaved in the West.
Babylon taught the people to detest. And instead invest.
In an oppressive Babylon system, with which there was no click.
Alienating from one’s own being, is what they used as trick.

There was a click!
The click was what made I and I tick.
In the speech, culture, way of life, connecting community.
There was a click!
The click was what made I and I tick.

Some go to a similarly alien and oppressive alternative.
Differences of slavery and deracination, but only relative.
Totalitarianism as religion. Downpression through the supernatural.
Trying to destroy the original click within I and I. There as natural.
Semitic languages’ guttural sounds, sound in Amharic like a click.
Amharic is Semitic with a click, as African and Ethiopian as Semitic.

There is a click!
The click is what makes I and I tick.
In the speech, culture, way of life, connecting community.
There is a click!
The click is what makes I and I tick.

Sucking teeth sound is found in Africa and among Africans uprooted.
A sound of dismay, called upon more and more because it suited.
Dismay because of all the loss, humiliation, and downpression in Babylon.
Yet besides sucking teeth, the African click is still there to call upon.

There is a click!
The click is what makes I and I tick.
In the speech, culture, way of life, connecting community.
There is a click!
The click is what makes I and I tick.
