Letter to the African Union

They came for our gold long ago.
They siphoned our treasures.




They carried them away in cargo for pleasures.
Then, they caged our ego

That is creative, priceless.
That is the reason we lost our senses.




Now that we are free,
We must create jobs for our people

We must make policies
That fit all Africans,




That will favour poor people
As well as the rich people.
