Arise Africa!

Arise
Africa
From
Your
Penury!
Now!

Letter to the United Nations Walker Bush killed Iraqis.
Statesmen killed Ivorians.
You arrested Lawrence.
You justified Bush.

Why acquit Bush?
But arrest Lawrence.
You arrested Charles Taylor.
You justified Tony Blair.

I never support injustices!
But who never killed the poor masses?
Who never murdered the poor masses?
You must punish all injustices!
