You peep through the still eyes of windows
On borrowed cars
And you shiver at the sight of fair-skinned people.
You are truly African
And this is not your home.
I see fear in your eyes
As you saunter about like a burglar;
Do not wish for crumbs my friend,
You are truly African.
You wish for death
do not die my friend
Africa needs you.
I know the people of today have tricked you
With beautiful deceit
Planted in your black soil;
But you do not have to die
For Africa needs you.
