A HOODED DREAM



Africa mother Africa 
Africa of scrumptious haven 
Slowly stretched 
Into an unscrupulous savannah 

Africa of whom my grandmothers 
Now sits and cry 
Singing her present gore 
Silhouette against her ancient glory

Your blood flows on our streets 
And on our streams
Your beautiful black blood 
That in time past flows in our veins	

Africa that birthed warriors 
Of ancestral citations
Now puppets of millennium recantation
 
The sweats of your toils
The scars from your slavery 
The cry for your freedom 
How come this has now
Transformed into a mastery 
Of your present folly


You  whose back was bent
To pack from her plenteous plantation
Now breaks in the continuous bid 
To pick form her present carnage
