|Dr. Joseph Tsang Mang Kin|
Africa! Africa! You are a continent
With savannas, forests and lakes bubbling
With animals, birds, fruits and a belly
Packed with riches enough to feed the world.
Africa! Africa! Unnamed, faceless millions
Displaced by floods and drought, hunger and wars
Diseased with malaria, HIV, you name it
No job, no money no future! Written off!
How can some sleep and the most go hungry?
While most will drown under poverty line
Why should our people’s wealth migrate abroad?
Where it grows fat in private bank accounts
Can somebody tell us what’s wrong with you?
Is there no one to want to change all this?
