When the Leaders are worthless, the artists are Royalty that reign.
So I ask you again, who have I been communicating with in Africa?
I have been talking to Kings and Queens of a Continent.
Don't play with me. I am not a toy to be played with.
I know many Kings and Queens of Africa.
We know the true Kings and Queens of AFRICA.
Reduce us to a nothing in your great Western World.
Crush us to a grain of sand but that grain of
sand still knows the KINGS AND QUEENS of AFRICA.
Artists are immortal and we know the immortals, personally.

Reduce us to dust and we will rise. You can not, and will not, break our spirit; as so long as we have breath we breathe, we'll speak and write about all those under-seen; never-heard and so ignored for Centuries.
|Me Time by Queen Sheila | Uganda|
The Africans are now in your living rooms. Spy on us all. Apple-pie on all of us. See us as clearly as humanly possible.
