Africa Unite

From the “jungles” of Soweto 
To the “lakes” of Kalahari 
Let us adopt grey children 
Call them Mogadishu or Benghazi. 
Donate your second hand underwear 
To the west 
Stand up! Let’s go 
Attack undemocratic countries 
Beyond the Mediterranean 
Let us go monitor 
Their elections and 
Determine who wins or just 
Declare rebels the rightful 
Leaders of a country. 
Let us go buy some humans 
From across the Atlantic, 
Chain them and make them 
Work on our plantations. 
If not, let’s go buy land in the isles 
Start up banks in that land 
And make the Afro world currency 
Let us hold 
Charity walks for sick 
Hollywood stars 
Along the streets of New York 
Also rear goats as Pets 
And hold tomato fights at Buckingham palace.
