Money In Africa

You the master of mankind
Long time from your hidden
Thee we prayed for
I chased you ran
Poor is waiting for you
UN need thou for peace
ECOWAS need thee for the west black
Some thee are God
everything thee are believe to
disaster thee brought

Calamity thou enjoy
'Daffou' alone
the workshop of poor soldiers
thee mankind fought
just to met thou in 'Daffou'
they pray for unstability
just to get thee in 'Daffou'

Africa the home of blood
thee thus calamity in sierra leone
the fell of Africa was thee
White continents thee blessed
Africa the fall

The best servant, but
a bad master
we prayed for thee
we called thee
they only number
die for peace
die for africa
if thee cant die
prostrate like leaves
from the market trees
flow to bring peace and
stability in africa

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem was written through my imagination. Disaster in africa has been so long without solution. Many service man pray to go to daffou and risk their live just to gain money. Sierra leone war was because of money and led to the death of thousand. But is also to settle peace and stability in africa by international organisations.

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
