as Rwada burns the world watches with disgust
only to close there eyes when bullets flare
bodies cover the earth beneath dust
As the people of Somalia wither away
like plants without feed
the rich wash there mouth with golden pearls
Africa will forever bleed
why are they being ignored
to be murdered and raped
straved by a society
that refuses to but food on their plates
As the people of Congo
disappear like raindrops through the wind
their wounds will stay forever open
for they feed on there own skin
is the world blinded
or is it that they refuse to see
how can they turn there backs on them....us
how can they refuse humanity
ten thousand
one million
a billion
what number claims genocide
how many will have to die
before hate is identified
why's the holocaust over
and millions of Africans die every day
could it be the color of our skin
thats causes the world to take a look the other way
why's a continent allowed to die
while the rest of the world reconsructs
how can the world live with our cries
when will they look beneath the dust......

Great poem, but I don't think this is the right section...

Or are you aiming to start a debate with the poem?

Amazing isn't it, instead of spending money on food and medicine for third world countries like Africa were too busy shelling out for uranium tipped shells.
