In Praise of America

America is the answer
To all of life's problems
America, the home of freedom
And self actualization.
The world revers America,
Paragon of beauty,
Epitome of pride;
I love America
Hopeful home,
Benevolent barn.

Don't Punish Me Hard

Don't punish me hard
I am too young to die
I recall my birth
The day is not too old
I am still brown
In the eyes
And black in the hair
I bet even
The raven knows
I am swifter
Than he.
My blood still ripples
In my veins.

I am a Man Now

I catch a fish in my hand
And do not let it go.
The fish stands for luck;
The juju that wicked people
Have been doing
To tie down my progress
Is waning fast.
I am mastering the tide,
My eyes clear;
I see the road a mile off,
I am a man now.

See Him Approach

See him approach
In his cragly wag
His silent trumpeting
Of poverty.
Scruffy lad
You arouse my pity
My nose is loose
Because of you.
You approach
In your cragly wag
Your silent trumpeting
Of poverty.
Scruffy lad
He arouses my pity
My nose is loose
Because of him.

Novelty Requires Strength

Novelty requires strength;
We need to be strong
To break those fetters
That cage us in,
That say, Quo vadis?
Stay and refrain from movement.
But we would move
Here is not best,
Our chests rise for what
Lies ahead.
We must proceed; move we must.
Yes, we need strength, and
God will avail it us.

Only Love Counts

Only love counts
Honesty may prove valuable
Build trust
Make me believe all you say

But honesty like faith
Cannot charm me
Truth is not always logical
I believe when I choose
Doubt comes when it will
Stays long enough
And goes of its own accord

Only love counts
Honesty may prove expedient
Confirm hope
But will not bond me to you

All Africa

Feel me talk proud
Hear me talk loud
Of Africa, the black land
The Sahel and the sand

Among swarthy men
The rythm and rumba
The samba and the conga
In the land of the oil den

My Africa is beloved
Of the setting sun
In the evening, tired
I loll and have fun

With the sea in my ear
The wind is in full gear
I am happy and smug
My ridges are all dug.

Berna

Berna, Berna, Berna my sister-o!
Ayaya
Berna, Berna, Berna my sister-o!
Ayaya
Wherever chewing gum goes,
Berna goes;
Ayaya
Wherever sweet goes,
Berna goes
Ayaya
Berna - ayaya
Berna - ayaya
Berna, Berna, Berna - ayaya
Berna my sister-o!
Ayaya
Whistles blow for Berna
Ayaya
Drums beat for Berna
Ayaya
Berna, Berna, Berna - ayaya

No Home

So many people
Do not have a home
Sure they have a house
But not each house is home

They say home
Is where the heart is
Not cushions and a rug
But smiles and a kiss

They look hard for love
The house walls them in
They embrace the streets
Trying to ignore the din

Where can my soul rest
From the nagging pain
Where can I go to escape
From feeling the loss again?

Spells

Spells trying to close my eyes
Witch doctors are dictators
Trying to destroy the bright future
Which Yahweh has made for me
Shall I let them succeed?
I should do well not to
I may seek to swell my future prospects
But the Spirit is still in charge
Of each and everything
I will succeed
When the time of God comes
Till then I shall pray
And seek well the face of God.
