Africa fills her beautiful eyes with tears in agony that has mastered her children
and overwhelms her turbulent emotions, yes she is a Queen for she gave birth to
nations of royalty and warriors, her crown so beautiful a bright light came from it
that blinds the eyes of those who wish to be led by the spiritually dead, her crown had colorful gems and precious minerals a masterpiece crafted by mother nature's green hands - this amongst many wonders made her planet earths beauty spot
I pity her as devilish dictators roamed her kingdom like killer locust flying over
her golden crop that left her children starring into the face of famine and her five
fearsome curses. The greedy man swallows her multi carrot wealth and feeds her
leaders the apple of poisoned politics, these leaders married their women to brutality and clothed them in thick garments of pain, these leaders stole the wholesome future
from their infant's mouths and filled their tiny soft innocent hands with mans greatest
invention THE MACHINE GUN to harden their hearts and insure that her fertile soil is
washed in their priceless blood!
But still her foot soldiers cannot rub their eyes and clear their vision blurred by a concoction of pretty propaganda, empty pride, falsehood and toxic morals this mixture is labeled " to make a civilized citizen with a strong sense of culture
These intoxicated soldiers’ march away from the frontline in the rhythm of late night bashes
as they indulged in a bottled joy, these troops will mock a virgin's flower, to these troops
AIDS is no foe but a legendary myth and death an illusion, for they conscience is no means of
By he who holds my breath, by he who put upon this earth the glorious book they will meet the hour. PUNCH your fist in the air, speak in colorful tongues, and lift your courage to the heavens.
FIGHT to free Mama Africa!
Let us FIGHT with our minds, our swords, our hearts and our spears.
For the power of their demise lies in what they wish to destroy.Fight for a def poet's ink can bring sight to blind minds
