The Boiling Point - Poem by Edward Kofi Louis

Out of the nostrils came the smoke!

Out of the mouth came the words,

But the boiling point of water is known to us.

Oh Africa my homeland! !

Rise up with the truth,

Move forward with positive morals!

Because, to err is human;

However, THE TRUTH edifies the body.

Your body,

My body,

Our bodies! !

Here on earth.

My people!

Why create gods and goddesses? !

Come out and see the light of the truth;

With righteous laws!

Even though, many are still in the dark.
