A poem to my country

Dear fatherland

the cradle of races
you lie among the many
with great sight of differences
in this mulatto of western languages

Oh great triangle!
you rise and fall
like ocean tides
in landscape and beauty
in patois and culture

Tell me you're not corrupt 
deny racial discrimination
country of peace
river of prawns, Africa in miniature

Cameroon.
