This is a photo of Ghana’s first president, Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah’s statue that got vandalized when he was overthrown in a coup d’etat that was orchestrated by the American CIA. “Wikileaks, do you have more information on this?”
When African leaders lose their heads
They turn their unwanted affections
Towards Russia and China and anyone
Who’d rather not have Democracy.
When Nkrumah lost his head, it was
Ghanaian hands that tore him up
But it was American brains behind it.
His Russian friends were too faraway.
When Mugabe lost his head,
China became his new found love
And his people are still paying
For spurning his cold, twisted love.
Now Gbagbo’s fever is getting worse
As he’s been left to shiver alone.
Russia just offered him a blanket
Full of blood-thirsty fleas.
But Dear Gbagbo, pushing yourself
down on a girl, is not the way
to do it anymore. If she doesn't
love you, let her go. Now.
Who knows? In time, they might worship you
just as Ghana now worships Kwame Nkrumah.
