  1. Africa, by Maya Angelou

    Thus she had lain
    sugercane sweet
    deserts her hair
    golden her feet
    mountains her breasts
    two Niles her tears.
    Thus she has lain
    Black through the years.

    Over the white seas
    rime white and cold
    brigands ungentled
    icicle bold
    took her young daughters
    sold her strong sons
    churched her with Jesus
    bled her with guns.
    Thus she has lain.

    Now she is rising
    remember her pain
    remember the losses
    her screams loud and vain
    remember her riches
    her history slain
    now she is striding
    although she has lain.
