Africa

By Wayne Visser

Gondwana
Born of Pangaea
When separation first started
Like a unicell dividing
 
Africa
Spilt from India
And from America parted
Cut adrift and subsiding
 
Birthplace
Of all humankind
Whose seed has been scattered
Far from the Ma tree
 
Darkspace
That light left behind
From progress that mattered
In the quest to be free
 
Battleground
Of tribe against tribe
Whose rivers of tears
Still bloodstain the sand
 
Whispersound
Of fate’s changing tide
As hope’s rising years
Unify this great land
