Take me to Africa!
I might not boast of technology or the latest car,
But I want to preserve the colonial scar,
Because there in lies the modern Africa’s star.
I want the Africa of green bamboos,
Devoid of alien taboos,
An Africa of hope where we believe in the power of the “can do”.
For the scar of Africa is mother nature’s tattoo.
I want an Africa where children can outside play,
Where fathers teach their families to pray,
Where even a beggar can have a say,
Where everyday would be 27th may.
