FOR AFRICA

I ask of the desert dunes,
The stately Kilmanjaro, the 
Mambilla outcrops;
I ask of the great forests
The seven old rivers
Snaking through my black 
homeland;
I ask of the noble rains,
Every ancient observer;
Does it matter who built the 
Old Zimbabwe
When we feed not today
Our hungry hordes?

    BRAVO i'm right here with you on this one keep up with these great writes, people find the truth hard to swallow but if there bellies begin to hurt from hunger all of a sudden their eyes and ears begin to hear the crys of their nation. cheri
