excerpt from "Letter to Obama" - Mbizo Chirasha


the world is wanting for you

singers are waiting for you

drum beaters are waiting for you

propaganda is waiting for you

paparazzi are waiting for you

presidents are waiting for you

villagers are waiting for you

planters are waiting for you

street kids are waiting for you

vendors are waiting for you



the wounded sing of you

the dead sing of you

the poets sing of you

shadow of malcolm x

footprint of luther king

freedom is you



for africa and america to become one

for africa to sing good of america

for america to sing good of africa
