Modern Day Slavery - Poem by mohamed Alpha Ba

Do you remember a day in colonial era,
when bariers and frontiers imposed on africa.
Reminiscing about that day
when the schools through which i had passed
the examination honours i had gained,
thought me of nothing else but foriegn people

this modern day slavery is
as savage and babaric to that which went before.
It may have ended in a dream,
in reality is like perfume smell wafting round us.
We sit in that summit to hear them waffle,
about how they will feed and dress us with aid
contolling us like dogs wagging it tails.
we are as pet under their carpet
like negroids and colonial masters.

This modern day slavery is
when bandits impose on us as leaders
whiles they sit dinking and smoking as elders
exploiting our home abroad like diggers.
It is time for us to dwell in pride
no more laziness
instead lets lace our boot
stand firm as muhammed ghadafi
to triumph like David and Goliath.

This modern day slavery
that has placed a cordon on our door,
killing our dogmatic able men,
convicting our strong elites in whites man kingdom
because we are as pet under their carpet.
But united we stand divided we fall
the choice is ours to make before we drown.

    it still happens even today, i never ever seen such evil scattaring and spreading so much, there is so much anger and hatred to our people, that shall never be removed, it always appear to be permanent, and i think i blame colonial slavery, that came to our continent and did as they wished, to be quite specific, we Africans were known to obedient and that resulted in us being exploited
