The State of Africa

The State of Africa:
The Ghost of Sani Abacha
Bathing under half of a yellow sun
Watches
As things fall apart
In the secret lives of Baba Segi’s wives

It’s Our Turn to Eat

Things fall apart
As the ghost of Sani Abacha,
Capitalizing on Catastrophe,
Narrates the secret lives of Baba Segi’s wives

But there is
No God but God
For the bottom billion,
The wretched of the earth
Who under half of a yellow sun
Quietly chant,
‘Its our turn to eat’

Why Democracy?
The Wretched of the Earth,
A Force More Powerful
Than
The Children of the Revolution
Who After
Bringing Down a Dictator
Got
DEMOCRAZY
