The black panther; no spots for fear,
Accustomed by the frails of the forests, 
To the long stretch of the Nile, 
Such beauty, I marvel at. 
Grazed fields, wetting bullock's appetite 
For the savannah- a stone throw in distance to the mighty Sahara! 

Oh! Africa! What a mighty creed envelopes your wits! 
In strength and might, she stands unequalled! 

Daunting cultures via tribes, 
Stretches the Zambezi river, 
Encombed by the beauty of the Niger, 
These caves of treasure brews heritage; 
Of untold generations. 
 The moonlight stories savour our bellies; 
 For each morsel we ingest; joy beams.
 The scent mild one's thought; for our meal trickles away the temptation of the past! 
 Such panther irks the spirits of conquerors.
 Oh Africa!
