African Man

African Man short poem

Photo by MattysFlicks


I am an African man
I am strong and healthy
Each and everyday I walk out of my home
Hoping to find a better job for my family
Where will I find a job while there is still corruption?
It’s about time maAfrika it’s about time

The poverty strikes the nation because of corruption,
Our kids’ future is being terrorised in Taverns, they dance kuze kuse
But just because I’m an African man I hustle kuze kuse.
