IN A NUTSHELL
Following the inauguration of Nelson Mandela in 1994, Selina and her little Jedidiah fled the country for the Dutchman had realized their contradicting identity. An old man found them in Dar es Salaam, a port city on the eastern shores of Africa. All aboard City of Smokes Timeship, they left Africa on December 25, 1995; a Christmas day in some people’s calendar. They left for the Blue Olympus Cape and landed there on the thirtieth day of October, the year two thousands and forty five and they lived there for a couple of decades in the outskirts of Taugamma, an industrial province south of Pink Shadow mostly mushroomed with shanty maisonnettes and other low life shacks.

PostSubject: THE GREAT AFRICA   Sun Apr 29, 2018 12:29 pm

I'm looking at you, from the Bering Sea
I'm looking at you, Mediterranean Sea
I'm looking at you, from Arabian Sea
I'm looking at you, from Caribbean Sea
I'm looking at you, from Erythraean Sea
I'm looking at you, from the Coral Sea.

I'm looking at you, from the eyes of Achebe
I'm looking at you, the Great Africa 
I'm looking at you, from the eyes of Nyerere
I'm looking at you, the Great Africa
I'm looking at you, from the peak of Makerere
I'm looking at you, the Great Africa.

The home of the Blacks, Caucasians and the Colored
Where human scrambles in turn like a ballad
Driven faithfully by the crusade and the Jihad
O great Africa, you're the best thing I never had
When I look at you, I feel home, I'm not sad
You're old and young, and without a bald.

I'm looking at you, from the top Kilimanjaro
I'm looking at you, the Great Africa
I'm looking at you, down the bottom Ngorongoro 
I'm looking at you, the Great Africa
I'm looking at you, from the canes of Kilombero
I'm looking at you, the Great Africa.
