An African Thunderstorm

The poem tells of a storm violent storm moving, this storm makes its way towards an African village causing havoc has it moves toward and through the village having the trees themselves bending over the strength of the winds. Clouds heavy with rain moving quickly, children laugh and shout as the storm makes it way but the mothers take them as they try to find shelter from the storm. The duality of the actual storm and colonization in the poem gives a hidden meaning in lines of the poem much like those of the songs of the slaves.
