WRECK OF SHIP-AFRICA

WRECK OF SHIP-AFRICA

Where is the sentiment of those who fought?
When their blood is shed and their story taught
Are we forgetting or we never knew.

Are we going to watch this sheep wreck
O! I cry for the captains are lepers and dread
We need another Christ to save us from ourselves

Life is at stake not for a good and reasoned course
Selfishness and brutality, innocent and the guilty suffers
The strong wage war against the weak without remorse.

    Good(albeit, forlorn)sentiments here -- the ongoing saga of beautiful Mama L'Afrique and so many other areas of the world. Yes, "The strong wage war against the weak without remorse." That's the true evil of it all, isn't it?
