Poverty

Poverty, Poverty, Poverty

 A word I have been hearing since I was a kid

You sound like someone whose deeds a seen,

But we can’t find you.

We try every day to destroy you, without vain.

Poverty, Poverty, Poverty,

Why make us suffer?

 

They say Africa is poor, so there is poverty?

Columbite–tantalite also known as Coltan is found in Africa,

Yes Africa is poor.

Tanzanite is found in Tanzania, Yes Tanzania is in Africa

More than half of the world’s Wonders are found in Africa,

Maybe we should start by redefining the word Poverty

Poverty, Poverty, Poverty,

Why make us suffer?

 

Maybe poverty is greedy politician,

Maybe poverty is uncaring businessmen,

Maybe poverty is due to bad planning,

Maybe poverty is due to bad infrastructure,

Maybe we can win the fight against poverty,

Poverty, Poverty, Poverty,

Why make us suffer?
