THE MAUSOLEUM OF ALL Africa is the burial chamber of many, Millions of men and women rested in peace, The deepest hole full of important bones, The bones of *****sapiens are in the graves. It is the cradle of humankind. Africa the sepulcher of our ancestors, “Rolihlahla Nelson Mandela, Emery Patrice Lumumba, Julius Kambarage Mwalimu Nyerere, Jomo Kenyatta, Kwame Nkrumah, Samora Moises Mashel, and Prince Louis Rwagasore.” Africa! The black coffin for all dies in Africa. Africa the mausoleum of humanity, I wish to be buried in Africa only, The angels are walking free in Africa, The guardians are guarding the graveyards Day and night. Africa! My last resting place, your burial place, Our burial chamber The last resting place of many kings: “Shaka Zulu, Haile Sellasie, pharaohs, Samore Toure, Mswati II, Tenkamenin, Mansa Musa, Sundiata Keita, Oba Ewuare, Sonni Ali, Osei Kofi Tutu, Sumanguru kante, Ngongo lutete, And Ezana Axum.” Africa! The mausoleum of many messenger- Prophets: “Isaiah Mloyiswa Mdliwamafa Shembe, Simon Kimbangu, and Jean Mwambi Mulaya Kadima.” You are our grave, oh Africa. All will pass there. By Alfonso II Warally. Chris
