Chipolopolo


Unfortunately we will not retire,
Across Afrika, we continue to inspire,
With this African trophy,
Our national achievement;
The African glory.

I heard celebrations in Angola,
Then I heard them again in Malawi.
They went nuts in Zimbabwe,
It was thrilling in Mzansi;
In praise to Chipolopolo.

We hold the African title,
We are the champions.
It took a lot of struggle and plight,
But it was worth the fight.

A new dawn has come,
From dust, a new King sprouts,
Now Chipolopolo they shout!

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
