Raise the platform in the alley
And let’s conduct a campaign rally
Let’s promise them a heaven amidst the storms
Let’s ensure something new, something out of the norm
Draft a new Propaganda
Dubbed “the agenda for a prosperous Africa”
Let us preach their utmost interest
And place it above every existing nest
Yes! yes!, that is what politicians Promises us;
Several non-existing development.
Yet we know what they truly meant
That all was for their Selfish interest
Full of greed and selfishness
Trading our welfare as if their own business
Corrupting the institutions
Polluting the populations
Trading our long lasting peace
With argument, war and corrupt practices just for a silver piece.
Advancing the knowledge gained from our books
Just for looting our resources for their shooting boots.
Oh Mama Africa
Till when will your cries be heard?!
Till when will your smiles be spread!?
Let’s raise the platform again
This time no falsehoods and selfish gains
This time let’s consider the natives livelihoods and pain
Let’s practise what we preach
And make every resource and opportunity get to everyone’s reach
Let’s have love for all and hate for none
And Africa will surely unite as one.
