Africanize Africa [Sestina]

That Heaven must be this far
When Africa needs it desperately
Whilst Africans are for blood hungry
For none other than black blood
Drawing machetes and pulling triggers
With a lot of sense that is nonsense

There is just too much nonsense
The reason Africa is this far
Injustice sires and hatred triggers
Selfishness and egocentrism infecting desperately
Promoting for no reason bad blood
Always eating ravenously, yet ever hungry

Time needed for feeding the hungry
Is utilized in debates full of nonsense
Provoking each other and drawing blood
Without realizing how far, far is far
Virulently taking on each other desperately
Planting bombs and pulling triggers

The deafening sound after pulling triggers
Frightens life out of the weak and hungry
Fighting for power persistently yet desperately
And crippling African power with idiotic nonsense
Seeking allies from overseas and far
Thirstily in a crazy rush for fellow blood

In our departed ancestors’ blood
There is a cry that shame triggers
But Africa is ever to busy and far
To heed that cry so hungry
Occupied in futility and nonsense
Whilst our ancestors plead desperately

Voices from black cemeteries try desperately
Urging Africa to stop spilling its own blood
But Africa mistakes the voices for nonsense
Charging further with warring triggers
Whilst African children still hungry
Depart to grab and kill from near to far

Black insurgents pulling triggers desperately
Their nonsense is pushing peace away too far
Blood is spilling while Africa remains hungry

Hello Africa

Oh africa what has
happen to you,
you have lost your
respect and that of culture,
what is happening to
you please tell me,
look at the street
of africa.....
sometimes i wonder if
this is really you,
africa where are all
those culture and tradition,
africa i have heard,
seen and sometimes i even
imagine how beautiful
you are!
tell me; what happen to you,
i use to measure
your source by your size
because GOD has bless
you with all kinds of
resource but are you
turning GOD blessings into curse,
why are you doing
this to yourself africa....
how come you lose your
virginity in such disgraceful way
tell me! ! !
africa thank you for
giving birth to this generation
we are for change....!

Peace - My Beloved Country - South Africa 1994

Somewhere an eagle flies
soaring o'er the dappled skies of Africa
Somewhere a tortoise cries
ploughing through the vast disguise of Africa.
A springbok dies and a day is born
The sun comes up to greet the dawn;
A child is sighing like a bird
And a nation is sounding a very new word.

Somewhere an apple train
waddles through the winding plains of Africa.
Somewhere a sparrow feigns
acting out the birthing pains of Africa.
A lizard leaps to his mother's scorn:
'Farwell, ' she says to her first born
A breeze is lifting a newly-fledged bird
And a nation is sounding a very new word.

Somewhere a new sunrise
burgeoning before our eyes in Africa
Has seen our childrens' weary sighs
bursting into happy smiles in Africa.
An aardvark snuffles through the corn
And winks an eye at a golden fawn
A sunbird is singing like you've never heard
And a nation is sounding a very new word.

Africa

Africa!
Your fauna, your flora, i yearn
In summer, winter or autumn
Yet your deep ravines, vast landscapes
Dwells serpents of the west
That suck from your veins
And reap what they sow not.

Africa!
Biting into my belly is the pain,
Like a spear through my guts
So is the intruder!
In camouflage, silhouetting:
Like a black shadow indeed!
All but to rob us of our gems!

Africa!
You ought to save your blood
From the cunning vampires,
That stoop like marino sheep
Yet their souls are bloodthirsty.
Brutaloty, murder, rife on motherland,
Save your people from the gallows.

Africa!
The gems you gave us,
Were they bestowed in vain or disdain?
Africa, you are on the horns of a dilemma
Until you swallow your offspring
And save them from these masked monsters.
Africa! its now or never.
