Mother Africa

Poem By Sinclair Azubuike

Mother Africa
You have become a laughing stock
Failing to utilise
The natural resources you've got

Others take advantage
While your land & mineral wealth are pillaged
As you lay half awake
From your long spell of amnesia
Lies continue to be perpetuated
To make you feel inferior
But when they portray you as worthless
It doesn't me you are

You need to remember
The greatness in your self
The glory of your soil
Which, you have shared with the world

Please mother, wake up
And take your place again
As the proud mother of civilization.

Thrust into trials and tribulations
Of an uphill struggle
We shall cry later, now we shall smile

Has been got rid of
He doesn't hide in my closet
Because I refuse to let him in

Tonight the stars flickered & flickered

Behind a carefully painted on mask

drips tears of a jovial clown

One Day people will wake up
realise that they had fallen asleep
drifting into a nightmare
sleepwalking into a dark abyss

Tears pouring from my eyes
Those pieces of paper
You could see on the floor
