Guess Who They Are

Poet: 

Nii Ardey Otoo

Guess who they are
Cowards unfit to rule
Cowards unfit to resist
Neo-colonialism and the
International community

Based on their Promises
We voted them into Power
But alas, all promises were Vain
As stomach politicians,
They represent cold-blooded
Multi-national corporations

Guess who they are
Cowards unfit to rule
Cowards unfit to resist
Neo-colonialism and the
International community

Honorable and Excellency are their titles
But noting honorable or excellent about their nature
They inherited the OAU, now AU
To unite the African continent
With one army, one currency
One foreign policy and a common market
For our economic independence
But as perfect agents of neo-colonialism
They sabotaged the unification of Africa

Guess who they are
Cowards unfit to rule
Cowards unfit to resist
Neo-colonialism and the
International community

A stand they must take
Either they are agents of imperialism
Faithful servants of neo-colonialism
Or defenders of the peoples aspirations
Submerged in inferiority complex
They cannot manage their own affairs
So they give up a rich continent
For cheap food donations and used clothes
This keeps Africa underdeveloped

Guess who they are
Cowards unfit to rule
Cowards unfit to resist
Neo-colonialism and the
International community

Afraid to execute the African Revolution
They ran to the IMF, WB, G-8 and G-20
To participate in their own exploitation
Blind to the abundance of their own riches
Their people wallow in poverty
Shamelessly, they ask the people
To tighten their belt
For the benefit of cold-blooded multi-national corporations

Guess who they are
Cowards unfit to rule
Cowards unfit to resist
Neo-colonialism and the
International community

Guess they are?
