AFRICAN ‘FAINTERS’

 

Live in Central Africa behold corruption and insurgency

North Africa another dirge of ethnic-sectarian insurgency

Seek refuge in East Africa yet uneasy calm of violence

Go to Southern Africa, yet turmoil and political violence

 

Vast insecurity; our human existence threatened

Hunger bites harder and life span is weakened

The dawn of illness, humans attacked by death

In struggle for escape, they faint and gasp for breath  

 

As a stone in water sinks slowly and surely

Daily our human rights deteriorate worryingly

Freedom our utmost desire and right

Yet we can’t decide our left from our right

 

Bribery and Corruption have grown so strong

The executives are feeble to limit the wrong

And Judges in their verdicts pervert justice

This is democracy devoid of sincere practice

 

No mercy; among the weak there are no saints

But the strong when found wanting faints

Desired justice and mercy are absent in the city

For obvious laxity; they are the comedians in the city.
