Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!
WAKE UP AFRICA
Wake up africa!
From your deep sleep and recessionary oblivion,
from the depth of stagnation and
the bleakness of your anxious toils;
wake up from the famines and starvation
caused by the use of obsolete tools and spoils of the soils.
Hoes and cutlasses are outdated,
slates and feathers are old-fashioned,
your arrows and spears are rudimentary weapons of wars!
Wake up to a new dawn,
the world is civilized:
camels are too slow,
donkeys too sluggish, the world moves in swfit;
The nightingales vocalizes in strange voice,
the gods despises blood sacrifices,
avenging for souls, lives and blood of the innocents.
Wake up africa,
to your liberation,wake up to see the sun,
wake up to upgrade your culture,
wake up to know that slavery and child trafficking is against the law!
