Inside Africa

By
Most Americans are unaware
Of big, old Africa and the danger there

The conflict dwelling in Sudan
Is too big for any one man

Arabs versus black Christians
In an ongoing fight of religions

With an Arab government backing the Janjaweed
People are driven from their homes, despite their desperate plea

Going to fetch a pale of water is no longer safe
Men will be shot and women deal with rape

People of all ages must travel hard terrain
Searching for safety, searchin’ and prayin’

Poor infrastructure, poverty, and oil
All contribute to Sudan’s great turmoil

Millions and millions of people have died
In what America now calls genocide

By now I hope you are saying, “But, what can I do?
Because I want to help, too.”

Well, keep informed, get engaged
Write to the government about this rage

Most Americans are unaware
Of big, old Africa and the danger there
