Africa Needs Help - Poem by Ol Buddy Jones
Africa, the cradle of civilization
We go African questions we're pursuing African answers
Beautiful women, strong women
Kids dying of diseases from being treated wrong
Being slaughtered in there houses and drove from their homes
Starvation from the lack of help
Africa needs help
Love heals but you can't understand what you've never felt
Day dreaming about better lives, stable houses, better food for our children
Can you feel that?
In school learning history, I was never taught my real history
Only what the white man taught me, His-story
His way about European glory
Like Martin Luther King Jr., I have a dream
No more biting tongues, not only for self
Because Africa needs help!
