Who are these people who pray for rain?
and then they God's people let die in vain,
who are these people, who profess righteousness?
and then plead saintly piousness.
Who are these men who allow their children to be aborted?
and let man's right to choose be distorted
who are these people who allows murderers free?
and their right to life hypercritically plea.
Who then are these people who allow their
women and daughters to be raped?
and then leave their victims lives mis-shaped
who are these people who allow men to sodomise?
and then preach their sexual needs to exercise.
Who are these cowards of disdain?
who are these men who leads people to their shame?
are they the ones who call themselves leaders?
are not they the ones who are supposed to be our server's?
Are they the ones elected by the people for the people?
are these the morals, are these the examples?
is this the legacy, you would leave the children of Africa?
is this supposed to be our wanted Utopia?
is this the people's desired nature?
Where does a God, in the plan feature?
is this man's destructive picture
is this the Africa, we want our mother's to nurture?
shame, shame, oh! lost peoples of Africa
shame, cry shame for Africa.
