An Ode to Darfur
Ambiguous feelings toward the slaughter of hundreds
its a slippery slope, like the top of your tongue gets
on the one hand a necessary evil crept past us
but on the other hand just how many did guns wet?
The vicissitudes in attitudes leave people confused
while the scope and scale of atrocities leave me bemused
Are they not important to us because they make no money?
or are they not important after all the resources are used?
So who is on their side? Not China Not Russia
Not the European states that used to make up Prussia
No way the U.S intervenes, only a handful care
Diamonds Diamonds Diamonds is all that we lust for
This is today's Africa, the motherland to millions
This is Africa, an early resting place for Billions
We want the gold, the oil. and a ton of Uranium
Strip it all bare, colonization stole Trillions
Bent and broken easily , just like cardboard
We have all the money, tell me what is your heart for
Death, rape, Bombs, guns, dismemberment, run! run!
all in a happy little place that we like to call Darfur
feel free to post your own
