Cry Africa

She 
is 
a 
fine 
damsel,
Fluent 
in 
Swahili,
Walking 
barefoot 
on 
the 
dusty 
streets 
of 
Mali,
Cracks 
under 
her 
feet 
incured 
from 
decades 
of 
strife,
Caves 
of 
filth 
and 
so 
they 
mock 
her 
when 
she 
passes 
by,
As 
the 
darkness 
thickens 
the 
silence 
becomes 
more 
terrifying,
She 
searches 
for 
a 
hiding 
place 
deep 
inside 
the 
jungle,
But 
fortunes 
deserts 
her 
when 
she 
comes 
across 
a 
rebel 
army,
The 
rest 
of 
her 
tale 
is 
yours 
to 
imagine.
Enjoy 
the 
benefits 
of 
the 
these 
bloody 
diamonds 
in 
the 
morning,
They 
may 
be 
swept 
away 
in 
the 
evening,
Enjoy 
the 
freedom 
before 
the 
speech,
They 
may 
be 
none 
after 
it,
When 
violence 
is 
sown 
in 
a 
home,
The 
roots 
may 
uproot 
the 
neighbour's 
house,
When 
a 
friend's 
cornfield 
catches 
fire,
The 
flame 
is 
at 
your 
doorstep.
Make 
a 
noise 
for 
the 
oppressed 
Somalian,
Shed 
a 
tear 
for 
the 
slain 
Malian,
Beat 
a 
drum 
for 
the 
hungry 
Sudanese,
Get 
on 
your 
knees 
and 
pray
For 
the 
African 
inferno 
to 
cease.

    A very moving piece. If you have a chance read my poems "Girl Rising" and "boy Sitting." I believe you would appreciate them. Blessings to you.

    We need peace in Africa. We need to free oppressed women in Africa. We "don't need no war in Africa!" You've moved me so much. I'll dedicate a poem to you shortly. It'll be entitled: Mandela In You!
