Mother Africa, a continent very poor
Any crime you committed to be poor?
Search yourself why you are so poor,
Full of natural resources still poor,
Gold, diamond, oil all available, still poor.
What went wrong with you that you be poor?
Your inhabitants so insecure and very poor
People killing each other and yet poor
So poor that children can’t access basic resources.
Famine is your acquaintance
Good fertile land you have yet, your friend is poverty.
Your citizens can’t manage a square healthy food,
Every year good rains, rivers flood
Yet your friend is poverty.
Governments full of greedy people who overlook poverty
Leadership is inherited and leads to overlooking poverty
Corruption, an everyday thing overlooking poverty
How would inhabitants get out of poverty?
Who cursed you to be this poor
Ever with some educated fellows you are you still poor
Resources are swindled leading to people being poor
Structures constructed yet conditions very poor
Conditions of all things poor, poor, poor
Why don’t you change from poverty to prosperity?
Teach your inhabitants to be proactive for prosperity
Teach your inhabitants to be patriotic for prosperity
Teach the educated fellows to be proactive for prosperity
Teach leaders to avoid corruption for prosperity.
