ATTRIBUTES OF AFRICA

ATTRIBUTES OF AFRICA

Africa and Africans.
The continent and her 
inhabitants.
Rich in like cultures
And full of African 
hospitality.
I'm a proud African. 

At the East,
The flag of peace 
Is mounted on the 
peaks. 
Then to the West
Is the African breast
That nurtures the sea 
beds.

At her horn,
The call of African Union
And summit is heard 
and held,
And the North,
Where the dear milks 
Are found and drilled.

Then in the hearts of 
Africa
Is the Nile in veins-
conduit
And the bare-chested 
grounds
Of the desert and sand 
dunes.
In the South lands
Is the rib-cage
Of precious metals
And culturally 
conurbates
With all its islands.
I'm a proud African.
