67.            AFRICAN UNION

I see you in two main regions,
The sub Sahara and the Sahara and northern areas
As the one are south and the other north
The on which kiss Europe and the other deep water
May the waters of knowledge reach south
As we farm, mine and create goods
Which we trade with our neighbours
So can the north benefit from Europe
As the dessert surround’s the oasis
Central and middle Africa can feed the south
As the South can feed it industry and technology.
Can we speak in one voice Africa
And hold the peace of an African Dream
And a renaissance whose goals
Must find mutual and neutral grounds
From the philosopher’s views
Who have apolitical insights?
