Africa need to be recolonized

Africa, I cry
For you so bad because
You chose to be a dwarf!!
When your gene sequence
Codes for giants, strength
Creativity and greatness!

It seems God created
You to be a zoo
Or an animal park,
Or some kind of sluggish,
Institutionalized, primitive,
Corruption dump site.

Forgive my words
But truth has to be said
Not hidden in shirts.
Who did this to you?
Making you a strong
Centre that can’t hold.

At times I wonder
Isn’t death better
Than breath in your coma?
I have great anger
Dealing with hunger,
And poor standard of living.

Hence I do wonder
Shouldn’t you surrender
And offer you for another
Century under
Colonial masters
To help you do much better…

Across your borders
Some miles yonder
Blacks owned by slave masters
Shackled like pillars
For glass and gunpowders
Are now way much better.
