Poverty In Africa ©

Ian McCrae
Sydney, Australia
2005

Help Africa again and again
How? Give them advice.
I wonder: Should we give food
Or simply, let them rise.

Give a man a bag of rice
That will feed his family for one day,
Give the same man an education
And he will feed his family forever and a day.

Why should eight men have to decide?
What is good for Africa?
Give the people of Africa dignity
Let them decide what is good for Africa.

Help them, yes, point them in the right direction
Freedom and dignity is the way,
They have the right to walk tall
Their dignity: their say.
