Mandela, the Real Gem

And that seems the death of an era
The death of a people
the death of one in all
Let tears roll from the sky
And rain from the eyes
Ninety-five is fine
The rest five shared to others
We said one hundred
You insisted ninety-five
That seems your generosity
All for peace
Live on Madiba
“father-son of Africa”
Have you seen Achebe?
when you see him,
Let him know things are still falling apart
In his home before you left
let bobmarley know that
We no longer kill our prophets,
Prophets now killing us
And “Mary J” hasn’t been legalised
and that many are still in mental slavery
Inform Saro Wiwa that Ogoni land
is still being exploited….
Let them all know the world remains same
Despite their struggle
The best place to be is home zone
And that’s where they are.
Oh! Fela, baba 70…
Let him know there’s still suffering here
Enjoyment in heaven.
RIP papa!
