The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - Janjaweed places in Africa

Janjaweed places in Africa


James Bredin

Half a dozen places in Africa are putting on a savage show,
Something like what happened in Rwanda ten years ago,
And once again the UN wants us there to stop the killing spree,
Some are inclined to blame a crowd called the Janjaweed.

Various ethnic groups and tribes being completely wiped out,
Close to half a million shot and killed by now or there about,
Itís been called ethnic cleansing and genocide - it depends,
But itís really religion and whoís talking and whoís their friends?

No matter which way you look at it; itís an awful mess,
And into the middle of this the UN wants Canada and the US,
And bring lots of drugs because half the people there have aids,
Then decide whose side youíre on as you listen to their tirades.
