I...Africa

I...Africa, cradle of life and of hope
decree the dawn...of new birth.
No more bondage in rope.
Able to realise my destinies' worth

I...Africa, of countless births
Stepping from dark to light,
Mindful of the dangerous earth,
Will rise and once again delight.

I...Africa, severely trampled upon
Nesting my deeply divided flock.
My splendour! Gaze thereon,
Of time and creature, frozen in rock.

I...Africa, the pulse in your vein
The throb in your chest,
The tear in your eye, now and again,
even your choice for eternal rest.

Delightful Dancer

Substance of essence, dancer delights
Igniting the night with tangible might
Incinerator of germ and historical foe
In ovens of grease our waists to increase

Force of nature, portable sun
Brother of air, and also of bear
Domesticated by man, solicited by time
To send meek and wild ever to run

In tales of the lost and also the found
Of ancient stakes and frozen lakes
Far flung places and many races
do many thrilling stories abound

in legend or culture or book
where men fear ghost and ultimate Host
humanity is still forged from destiny and iron
dancer delights, substance ignites.

African Hope

Gather ye...Gather ye
Come...sit at the table of hope
Hear...hear...hear...

I am the hope for Africa's children.
When I can see light, Africa can see light
When I can hope, Africa can hope,
When I can learn, Africa can learn and
When I can smile, Africa can smile.
When I roar with the thunder of the mighty
Zambezi, Africa too...roars

Gather ye...Gather ye
I am the table of hope
Listen...listen...listen...

Within me lies ubuntu...yes ubuntu
Let me provide for you
Let me nourish you
Let me share with you

Such is a Woman’s worth

What is a Woman Worth?

What is woman worth in stature
If not a priceless entity of passion and beauty?
A Queen unrivalled in all of nature.
Such is a Woman’s worth

Is she not the bearer of Man?
Then afford her the ultimate Honour
And cherish that notion oft as you can
Such is a Woman’s worth

Above even man, she stands
In all that is life and love and far beyond
Loving heart and warm hands
Such is a Woman’s worth

Man cannot be without her care
Nor find comfort in his kind
For there is no substitute out there

Thy Kingdom Undone

In Africa the lion is no more
The jungle not his home
For he now opens a door
The corridors of power he is seen to roam

In Africa the monkey has left his tree
The fur traded for a suit
He now likes to travel, this for free
Along the way of the gravy route

In Africa there once flew a merciless vulture
The vast fields his hunting ground
He now nests in a place devoid of his own culture
The city the place he is well reknowned

In Africa the snake no longer hides in the grass
The slippery tongue he uses to orate
To mislead the masses and impress top brass
And then accuse others of political farce
