66.       SUB-SAHARA

How many of the world can point you out
People of the sub Saharan sun,
As you cut up your opposition
And eat their hearts for strength
How little are your waters of knowledge
And how skin deep is your civilization.
You are one of the most sparsely populated areas
For the riches of your soil
And the we toil for wars to boil
In a joint economic region
Of the rich and the poor.
In our education we build our industry
When our cheap soils riches is history
For the African dream and renaissance
We need a joint operation
Of open borders and currency
As we jointly prevent wars of small politics
We can learn from the French Foreign Legion.
