PAN AFRICAN ANGST (EXCERPT)

There is a Pan African anger

Which has created many an avenger

So much they want a changer

With one body, they work like a fate arranger

They curse the foreign endanger

And say their faith is our freedom exchanger

And our old gods imprisoned for their baby in the manger

Who is a complete stranger

And dipped our land in danger

To make us their stooging strangers

II

They seek out the buried kola

Dig out broken calabashes…

Promising to mend their fabrics
