Africa is not a country


Africa is not a country 
Believe me, renege such notions 

Africa is not a virgin 
Not green, like a new leaf 

With 11,677,239 square miles 
To its name as owned, a stretch of land 

Africa is not a country
Not for its size, population or governance 

Not for its language as spoken 
Not for the culture so varied 

If for the law of assemble order was to be
And gravity is to gather on principle 

The biggest above and the less bigger ones 
To sit at the bottom of a pan sieving   

If by population, as given in economics demand
Supply of resource materials, and value added is added 

If so Africa would now be the second 
Strongest economic continent in the world 

Second only to Asia on both accounts 
So why then, the confusion  of the supposed order 

Who keeps pulling the short straw as representative 
When asked to pick one to reflect an image 

Politics and social cry renders some incompetent 
I heard another town fell into the hands of the rebels 

And the world news pick up on it like piranhas 
Africa, Africa Africa "in Africa, another........"

What is worse this time, is the naming  
'Central African Republic' 

So again I say, Africa is not a country 
Though confusing from the media reference 

And such named country as a central republic 
Africa is not a country not by a long stretch  

But a continent old, the beginning of the human evolution 
Whether it is 54,55 or 56 countries, is to be debated 

But Africa is not a country, a default on citation 
For it is the eldest continent, of the seven daughters of earth
