They met at G20 and the appeal was the deal
and in all COVID scare did our President the package seal.
I listened to the tune
found no prune.
Only to hear that Africa needs more and more
is it that Africa has no cure?
Cure for the malady of having hat on floor
for a few cents to get to the door.
Has Africa not the power of self reliance and invention
or is it just that Africa likes the attention?
What attention is the burning question
Africa asked so much, too much on every media’s mention.
BBC, FOX, Al -Jazeera, RT & more dramatised Africa in the beggars’ space
all our children in starving disgrace.
Government stability in tatters
as corruption flatters.
Looters on the loose
while the speedster on the road is in the Cop’s noose.
Oh! when again and again the African Presidents appealed for help
My heart let out a yelp!
Africa is wealthy in resources, intellect & ingenuity
it can build, mine and innovate with infinity.
The beggar and the violin, the Presidents and the G20 Summit
all together taking the plummet.
The Presidents of Africa all cap in hand
no difference to the beggar at the door in the land.
Only difference are the venues and the clothes
and the African Presidents are more verbose and love prose.
What’s the price of begging at the G20 Summit from all Lilly & White?
Oh! Its just gold, coal, diamonds, platinum and surrendered without a fight.
Ah! Got you now Africa, the more you come a begging
the more you remain lagging.
We will keep you fighting to slurp on your corruption
while we leave all on conspiracy & assumption.
UN troops and boots on African ground
ICC says nothing found
except for the dictator who failed to play our sound!
Play the violin on symphonies
blended for out of Africa sympathies.
Open is the new colonial agenda
played from 1652 to 2052 hiding no Panda.
Oh! Presidents of Africa, play the violin, sing the song
It’s not long.
You will be back now, now! Wait we visiting the moon
Our Space Station we got with collaborations
while Africa keeps splitting their nations.
Money for exploration, resource extraction and invention
is our intention.
Flood African markets with gadgets, luxury, Ferraris & wine
Making leaders frenzy to pine for more to dine on all fine.
Thats how Africa is kept begging
It will be lagging.
If only Africa unites
all of Europe will be given kites.
Oh! Presidents move away
the beggar’s space is not in your sway.
Arise African Presidents ‘the hand on top is better than the hand below’
Know this and Africa will never lie in the shallow.
