Five Million

by St Antoine de la Vuadi

Five million words
Make a long text
That can teach you
How to love your brother.

Five million country
Will never stay peacefully
In our beloved earth
Which finally organises our death.

Five million songs
Are maybe more than
All beautiful songs
Composed by Africans.

Five million dollars
That he has earned
By selling diamonds from
Our begrudgingly wounded Africa;

Five million people
Are on the holy list of those
Who have lost their lives
In their own and beloved Congo.
