Broken Fragments of a twisted mind

Mostly dark with extremes of sad

Her journeys end is never reached

The vortex of time, her only road

Through our lands, she sows her seed

Preaching hatred, greed and mostly death

With destruction always close at hand

Carving pathways through mankind

Mothers raped and daughters maimed

Little boys with gun in hand

Her tools of choice, until death she does guide

The lands are dark and men are few

Vultures share, with us our dead

The warlords march another day

The cry of Africa will be heard

In a time to come

When we shall share the peace and bury the past.
