Why Africa? - Poem by Benjamin Icon Ede

From atop Egyptian pyramids, Thy luminous beams Adorn faraway realms; Lands beyond seas, Minds across oceans and hills- Why blind? Why dark? Why lack? Oh, thou cloud tha rains- Rain like perspiration from thy brow- That, that rejuvinate the farrow, Bloom the bud of tomorrow, Thou dark soil where buried is gold; Dark skin whence strength unfold Why dark? Why lack?
