Africa's Breast

Poem : " Africa's Breast "

* Africa's Breast has fallen,
And now oozes sour milk,
The breast of a disvirgined virgin,
Africa a dagger breast....

* Suckled by the large mouths of foreign countries,
With their insatiable lust for mother Africa's milk,
Draining her off her sweet milk, making her breast fall like the London bridge.....

* The breast no longer stands,
Because Suckled dry ,
It now looks like an ironing board,
With nothing left for us to suckle......

* What not we would have had,
If we had Suckled it when it was Standing, Round and bouncy,
But as the breast is our economy ,
Suckled by foreign mouths ,
And we suckling from our mother's fallen breast .....
We suffer.........

Africa's Breast...
