Going Back - Poem by Chanda Nsofu

Going back, going back
Africa you going back
Going back to ancient times
Slavery was abolished but now it is alive
You started going to hospitals
but now you are going to witch doctors
You started going to school
but now you cannot afford
You were wearing clothes
but now you are in tatters
You commenced burying in coffins
but now you are burying in reed mats
You started using vehicles for transport
but now you are walking
Africa you are going back
Going back, going back
