FOR THE AFRICA IN WAKANDA

 

Oh Africa,

land of the beautiful, continent of the gods,

chart of beauty, foundation of human race,

complete with littoral boundaries of resources,

you, Africa, an advanced civilization in twilight

Wakanda is the present, telling the past glory of Africa;

 

Africa, quintessence of exquisiteness,

incarnation of rich culture and fruitful agriculture,

Oh Africa! How should I express thee in wake of Wakanda?

Africa how should I narrate your metier in the magnificent past?

and even now, your fecundity of virtuosos brought us Wakanda.

 

Wakanda, a creation in a continent of Africa,

you are a city as well, run by people of Melanin,

bejewelled so imperially like the lions of Selassie,

it is through you that we have seen Africa, Wakanda;

now, illuminate from the future and save the existing Africa.
