Africa, my africa
africa of proud warriors in ancestral savannahs....
is this you, this back that is bent
this back that breaks under the weight of humiliation
this back trembling with red scars
and saying yes to the whip under the midday sun.....
that is africa your africa
that grows again patiently obstinately
and its fruit gradually acquires
the bitter taste of liberty.
