African Leaders

By: Mohamed Abdikadir (Stanza)

 

African leaders are you not ashamed?

Ashamed of killing your own children!

The children that need your protection!

 

African leaders are you not ashamed?

Ashamed of endless military confrontation!

Leading us towards continental destruction!

 

African leaders are you not ashamed?

Ashamed of fighting for a mere seat!

In peace can’t you discuss and meet?

 

African leaders are you not ashamed?

Ashamed of raping African mothers!

And displacing senile African fathers!

 

African leaders are you not ashamed?

Ashamed of your aimless political game!

Burning the youth with a bloody flame!

Ashamed of your creative men’s burial!

Killing them and crying over their funeral!

Full of fraud and awful of a corruption!

Acting warlike to each other like a rude!

Separating the vowel from the consonant!

Ashamed of your bitter dictatorship!

Thinking only about your chairmanship!

Ashamed of the massive displacement!

And missing your citizen’s compliment!

Seeking support from other leaders!

Ashamed of blaming others!

For your own personal errors!
