Things Fall Apart
Adamant mindsets In a modern setup, Vibrant visions evaporates To emptiness, nothingness and waywardness. Leaving the people in stark darkness, Leading to nowhere, As penury is declared "king", Hunger succeeds the throne As blind leaders hardened the Economy like bone. Giving peanuts to the peasants But gold for the wealthy, Oh! what a chess game in the midst Of blind spectators..... Mothers swaying in tattered rags, Struggling with drying breasts which Produces the hopeful milk of the skinny infants... Children strolling with empty plates Searching for who to wet their throats. Fathers planting courage and assurance, Hoping the land will be milky someday, Yet the center is not holding For heads are plenty but the brains are few... Therefore turning weakening hearts To marauding crooks, Victimizing themselves, Staining their whites, Be litling their lives, Insulting their hands Making the land stink, While Africa bears the smell, To the detriment of her virtue. Our agricultural and peaceful "green white green", they've turned to A dark and bloody "red black red". Now who leads who in this Criminal war front, corrupt justice And indecisive generation? Things fall apart when truth step aside, Evil takes the lead when black minds Score the goal... Things fall apart when the people can't merge.
