Kwasibita 2.0 (Tribal Medicine)


Kwasibita 2.0

Someone called it mockingly

Foreigners trying to cheat

An Amerindian medicine man

From Kwamalasamutu in Suriname

Out of a tribal cure for cancer

Paying nickels and dimes

Bringing back memories

Of a African slave called Kwasi

Discoverer of the Kwasibita

Nature’s gift to the ailing man

For which he was rewarded

Only in name
