Call of Africa

Tribal divergence
Within genocide
Bloodshed day by day
While a Million plus
Put down deceased
Waylaid along a roadside

~~~~~~~

Echoes reverberate
In deaths ultimate toll
Manipulation within
Nations of super power
Coveting their secreted
Masked desire

~~~~~~~

Hear her plea…
Hear her cry…
Turn your ear…
Refusing to hear

~~~~~~~

Man woman and child
Of diverse hues of blacks
Pitted against birthright
Within tribal belief
Propagated by
Superficial control

~~~~~~~

Raising blades in loss
Spilling blood…
To soak upon her earth…
Diminution of populace
Greater powers aspire
Obtainment of riches

~~~~~~~

Hear her pleas…
Hear her cries…
Close your eyes…
Succumbed in lies

~~~~~~~

Industrialized countries
Turns their ethics away
Raping majestic resources
Pleading to absent nations
As masses of homeland
Congregate deaths gate

~~~~~~~

A international economy
Laced within monetary
Erogenous in their politics
Facing economic strife
In sustenance of material
Turning a blinded eye

~~~~~~~

Hear her plea…
Hear her cry…
Turn your ear…
Refusing to hear

~~~~~~~

In propagation of power
For she holds them many
Her magnificence contained
Within virginal scapes
Prosperity of minerals
Hidden beneath her dress

~~~~~~~

Listen to and discern
Africa's call of pain
As you sit in your chair
Feeling decimation of wealth
Upon her native ground
As a world turns in disdain

~~~~~~~

Hear her plea…
Hear her cry…
Turn your ear…
Refusing to hear

~~~~~~~

The Call of Africa...
