Help out in Africa
Another war, conflict or famine in Africa this week,
Many sub Sahara dictatorships tend to be pretty bleak,
And the UN want us in Darfur now to keep the place in check,
But we’re already in Afghanistan and we’re up to our necks.
They need more money in Africa too for dictators’ guns,
Though a million starving kids will get absolutely none,
Dictators’ Swiss bank accounts though, will get a big boost,
And more dictatorial policies will be introduced.
