AFRICA – A Land Betrayed

As though, a game of geometry
By White men, o’er Black ethos
Colonies of, civilized debauchery
Foisted, on the tomb, of a land’s pathos!

In 1885, on that sacrosanct day
In Berlin Conference, 7 White Cliques
Doled out a continent, o’er power-parlay
To bleed Black Clan, on white crucifix!

What ensued was, an ethnic aftermath
Which tore to shreds, Black History
Black Man baptized, in White Bloodbath
Black Land became, a White Bounty!

Still lingers on, that White Man’s Curse
Whilst rootless souls, fight a lost crusade
Black Heritage lost, to White Saboteurs
Pays evolution’s cost, A Land Betrayed!
