*Listen to 'African Anthem'
              World's End
              =================

              Umpires lose control;
              A head runs amok;
              Challenge to game rules;
              Foul, umpires whistle.

              Penalty awarded, refuted;
              New power emerges;
              Tussle for the imperialist lion;
              Nuclear cyclone molds winds of war.

              Alliances, propaganda, trade tackles;
              Heavenly spies fill the skies;
              Heat descend, flares tempers;
              Embassy castrations the norm.

              Drums of war and conquest;
              Winds stronger, temperature of stroke;
              Powers lock horn, earth jitters;
              Only heavens know the Armageddon

              World of Peace
              =================

              Milk and honey, bread and butter,
              Jingles of peace and tranquility;
              Dominance, oppression, drums of war;
              Threads between joy and grief,
              In a world of strife and struggles.

              Energies abound in mankind;
              Fine lines between good and evil;
              God's love and barbarism,
              Of His image and predation;
              Two way or selfish one lane road.

              Blood shed, of the beast;
              War drums, echoes of the wild;
              Respect, love, cushions of peace;
              Peace only silencer of nuclear doom;
              Doom yes, nuke threat abound, alarming.

              People envy, nations pride;
              Race, nationality, of superiority to the sick;
              Gun powder, nuke bomb, for control;
              Doom seeds, no other, naked truth;
              Love and prosperity, reign of world peace.

              =================

              Mill walk the journey to fun and more;
              Great city flowing with best brews;
              Miller brews among others with exotic tastes;

              Child Soldiers
              ======================
              Heavens cry, mothers bemoan;
              Father, son, trade metals;
              Sides slug out, children entangled;
              Young minds dance the limbo.

              Munition, wars, as toy games;
              Battle field as play grounds;
              Bullets blow the whistle;
              Trenches shield blind shots.

              Murder tutorials, the course;
              Predation, vandalism, honors;
              Grades in white stripes;
              Nation wastes her rising suns.

              Endless Love
              =================

              Divine unending love;
              Heaven high, earthly wide;
              On a 'plus' reinforced;
              Through betrayal, agony and death.

              Life hacked away, spirit stronger;
              Death glorified from resurrection;
              Earthly freedom from anger above;
              Redemption for all that dwell.

              Endless love, ever unfolding;
              Wondrous, bountiful, everlasting,
              In loops of love and peace chain;
              Earth's engine in watts of mega-love.

              Knowing Him Now
              ========================

              Years of opportunity;
              Decades unfolding;
              Disciples up the task;
              No fees to believe in Him.

              First day in His glory;
              Faithfuls stand on Knees;
              Gates unguarded, unfettered;
              No fees to join flock.

              We march six feet down ;
              Now or never alive,
              Answer salvation call;
              Not in casket by altar.

              War Tears
              ==============

              Mad men's game;
              Madness, lawlessness;
              All about power and greed;
              Blood, mayhem, the price.

              Wars, gruesome tales;
              People rights in limbo;
              Rape and torture, the norm;
              Grief, pain, descend.

              War cries, war tears;
              Human lives as sticks;
              Genocide, rebels, sides claim;
              Heaven the truth knows.

              Oppressors may vanguish;
              Almighty to review;
              Earthly win, heavenly loss;
              God to console.

              African Diaspora
              ======================

              In the diaspora he sat down;
              And there he wept;
              Remembering Africa;
              Mouth open, unable to a song.

              Eyes full of the ocean;
              Mouth imploded with praises;
              Thought stacked full of memories,
              Memories of Motherland Africa.

              In bits he uttered;
              Africa, my cherised home;
              In the diaspora unable to a song;
              I want to come to there.

              War Worries
              ================

              Earth engulfed, coast to coast;
              Heat on, within - across;
              Hopelessness and desperation;
              Earth boils, shakes.

              Leaders warn, same accused;
              Armories swell, prayers bemoan;
              Temperature in heights;
              Earth rattles, jitters.

              Pendulum dances a ballad;
              Conspirators spice rhythm;
              Threats consummate alliances;
              Worries, threat of war.

              Uncertainty molds the days;
              Propaganda taint the press;
              Minds roam in stress;
              Earth worry and ponder.

              Liberia
              =========

              Land of freedom;
              Land of the setting sun;
              In Americas you rose;
              Freedom in sought.

              Land of great heros;
              Land of revolutionaries;
              Liberia or liberty;
              Sierra Leon bemoaned.

              Beautiful seashore home;
              Pride of Africa;
              Symbol of blackness;
              Great black icon.

              Thou shall rise again;
              African Union enshrined;
              Thy labor to bear fruit;
              Bounty, peace, freedom.

              Oiled To Foolishness
              ===========================

              Drinks and broke;
              Gambles away, violent home;
              Home abused, neglected;
              Comparable analog.

              All over the world;
              Worst in Africa;
              Oil boom, human nightmare;
              Nation suffocates;

              Sold in barrels;
              Accounted in margins;
              Pockets full, treasury dry;
              Loot 'Swissed';

              Ethnic bickering;
              Resource control fumes;
              Gun barrels hold unity;
              Nation in coma;

              Gravely deep sleep;
              Angels hover above,
              For nation's requiem mass;
              Oiled to foolishness?

              Madness & Vultures' Feast
              ==================================

              In Europe it started big and massive;
              Great wars, great loses, great feasts, 3Gs;
              Human madness, mankind's zealousness;
              We killed, we maimed, we polluted;
              The air stenched, vultures rejoiced our madness.

              Munition sounds, heavenly jet bombardments;
              Destructions on earth, lives hacked away;
              We fool, vultures feast and bury loved ones;
              The air smell, bones criss-cross the land;
              Warriors and people perish, senseless wars.

              Whole wide earth besieged with 3Gs;
              Wars, loses, senseless feasts, feasts on lives;
              Asia arms, Mid E. rocks, Africa fight, Europe alert;
              Vultures bury, grow on flesh, exhume as feces;
              Bones criss-cross the land, pathetic signs of R.I.P.

              Black & White
              ===================

              Countless human colors;
              Within, across, races;
              God's earthly flower garden;
              Blessing to mankind.

              Africa mother stock;
              Home of germination;
              Divine manifestation,
              Until whole earth bedded.

              Beauty more than a trait;
              Diversity most beautiful;
              Monocolor too boring;
              Races beauty of earth.

              Races like rainbow;
              Earth horizon beautified,
              To His glory above;
              All that dwell rejoice.

              Longevity
              =============

              Chemical war heads on shelves;
              Preservatives the reactors;
              Dine food that spoil;
              Bunker life with nature grown;
              Living to the maximum.

              Bite as can cushion;
              Munch within the room;
              Tame the stress builders;
              Flower the dreams;
              Longevity the salary.

              One day at a time;
              A card before another;
              Smiles and happiness;
              Years to the number.

              The grave years afar;
              The bones miles support;
              Great and Grand the titles;
              Near century not decades.

              Dungeon Cells
              ===================

              In Africa, everywhere;
              Third world they thrive;
              Change first claim;
              Reach out as saviors.

              Trade on votes;
              Shoot down power at times;
              Plunder whole nation;
              Bank away in West;

              Army bully to fear;
              Murder, blackmail, opposition;
              Rape to satisfy lust;
              Quench throat with alcohol.

              No looking East;
              Home destitute, in disrepair;
              West thrives with loot;
              Rise up, oh! Africa.
