AFRICA

AFRICA AFRICA IS MY NAME MY NAME THEY MENTION WHEN THEY TRAVEL FROM THE NORTH TO THE SOUTH, FROM THE EAST TO THE WEST WHAT DO YOU SEEK? VEGETATION, MINERALS, WATER, INTELLECTUAL MEN AND WOMEN I AM THE FOUNDATION OF CIVILIZATION AND TRANSFORMATION HMM! THEY PLANTED CORRUPTION, HATRED, WARS AND IMMORAL ACTS IN MY ABODE MY HEART BLEEDS MY SOUL WEEPS MY CHILDREN PERISH MY IMAGE TARNISH MENTAL SLAVERY IN THIS TWENTY FIRST CENTURY IS THE ORDER OF THE DAY INFERIORITY COMPLEX; MY CHILDREN CHANGE THEIR COLOUR FOOLISHLY THINKING THEY WILL BE THE FINEST GIVE ME WATER FROM THE GREAT NILE TO QUENCH MY THIRST MY THIRST I MEAN I NEED TO DRINK TO BECOME THE FIRST MY FIST I THROW IN THE AIR TO TAKE MY SEAT CALL THE ENTIRE CONTINENT TO COME AND SHARE IN MY FEAST
