Brother Africa

Rating: 4.3
He lies near to death
Dying in the dust
Broken and forgot.

Now his children
Once mighty tribes
Fall before the setting sun.

His women - - young and old
Dead and dying
Host the killer AIDS.

captures the essence of how africa still is in chains. the physical ones are gone but the continent reels under poverty ignorance and diseases. the rich brothers plundered africa so they will not own up or even pay reparations
