Africa


Being an African American in this nation bring lots of frustration
They use our invention to build up their nation without even saying congratulations

This war will never end
Oh no my friend, it goes on and on
Oil getting so expensive-only alternative
We plant more corn

Once was the richest country
Now it needs your help to break the spell of the witch
Other nations don't care- only want to see Africa fall in the ditch

We are strong with lot of power, yes this is true
If all Africans could come together- imagine what we can do

Please remember Africa in all that you say and do
When you take a bite or a trip (remember) ,
Africa helped shaped this world too.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
