Waste Disposal - Poem by Njousi Abang

Isn't it a crime against humanity:
This waste that is transported and dumped
On the African soil by people who care?
Isn't it a crime against humanity:
This obsolete guns that are sold
To support armed conflicts in Africa?
Isn't it a crime against humanity:
To arm dictators to crush civilians
With useless arms and armoured vehicles?
Isn't it a crime against humanity:
To pollute the environment and suffocate
The less privileged ones in all climes.

This is so cruel that we euphemistically call it business
Yes, the buying and selling of lethal weapons
That poses a threat to humanity in all zones.
Let us for once put the cat before the horse
And save the world and those to come
But not our mercantilist interests
And bias outlook of the global issues.
