                                   AFRICA  --A MODERN VIEW

                   A zure skies sing lullabies--still tremors built of fear
                   F renzied red machetes dance in children’s midnight dreams
                   R aging mothers gather close the loved ones they hold dear
                   I dle politicians daily change their back room schemes
                   C orruption shakes the ground while other nations play their games
                   A zure skies say nothing but remember dead men’s names
