World Reverting Back To Imperialism - Poem by Theorem The Truth Serum

I can hear the cries coming from Africa.
The people of bludgeoned nations
that cannot unite with one another.
The people look like they know
that they are completely forgotten.
The imperialists from the past
still get to keep their loot that
has now long been 'theirs'.
The Africans are fighting each other
when they should fight to get
their property that is owed to them.
Their lives would be more enriched
if they had a sense of self.
Their own people have given into
imperialism and force this view upon
their own people without regret.
They got guns and they got drugs.
They got food and they got 'power'.
There is civil war and there is slavery.
The real imperialists sit at home and read
their papers and condone an irresponsible
war like Iraq because we don't speak
against it as much as we should.
We should be fighting for Africa.
We should be fighting for humanity.
