A Poem For Mama Iyaluua Ferguson On Her 85th Birthday — by George Edward Tait


IYALUUA

By

George Edward Tait

(On the Octogenarian Occasion of the 85th Birthday of Iyaluua Ferguson – June 29, 2017)

Iyaluua!

She shuns the limelight, avoids the spotlight

A soldier in the shadows

The moonlight methodologies of a militaristic matriarch

Maternal maneuvers against the missing-in-action malevolence of mainstream media

With endearing and enduring editorship of the Nation Time newspaper:

A political prisoner protection platform and project and program –

Fueling a frontline family of fail-safe freedom fighters. Iyaluua:

A nonpareil nurturer, a natural nationalist, a Nubian New Afrikan.

Iyaluua!

Queen Mother and Warrior Queen

A blessed bond with Yemoja and Yaa Asantewaa

Parental passion for a Pan-Afrikan populace

Watchful wife and wisdom worker

A blessed blend of marital ubiquity and martial uniformity

A revered representation of revolutionary royalty

A paradigm of persistence and perseverance –

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
