My poem ignored, but...

Yahoo! Today I posted my poem, "She is Here," on the krazitivity listserve. But nobody has commented on it yet. Rather, some guys are more interested in the debate over the unfortunate killing of the schoolteacher in Gombe. I am being skewered again for expressing, strangely, a view that is similar to that of my opponents. My argument is that I am being judged for being a Muslim first, rather than on what I say. Someone from the Guardian (I knew the chap) even charged that I never contributed to the group. Ah! What of my poems, comments, etc of the past? I wonder when Naija would ever be correct, with people like those, who cannot see beyond their sectional noses.
