Africa At War With Herself

Look at the youngest nation of all,
The citizens are at war with themselves,
Can the situation be edged out?
Look at congo,Somalia ,
Africa is at war with herself.

Our story is told by someone else,
Our media controlled by someone
We got unromantic stagnant economy,
What do we own?
What do we possess?

No African food in our hotels,
All hotels have been modernized,
Even fried potatoes they're, called French fries.
Where is our culture?
Why are we worshipping these guys
I think Africa is at war with herself.

We are humiliated in embassies,
As we seek the mighty green cards
To be enslaved in foreign countries.
We don't believe in our doctors,
Neither do we in our teachers.
We've lost faith in our education system.
We got civil engineers ,
Yet our roads are built by foreigners.
That's why we die hoping,
To be flown out of our continent ,
Yet we have proffessionals of our own.

We are author's of our misfortunes:
We elect hyenas to take care of goats
We elect land grabber's
We elect thieves
Who steal and humiliate their own
Let's remember,
You can't expect Pharaoh to take you to Canaan.
Let's open our eyes
Let's open our ears
And let's change this continent .
For Africa is at war with herself
