Poem: "What Is the Soul of Africa?"
What is the soul of Africa?
What is it?
Is there a soul of Africa?
Is it simply that we have
contrived to be what humans are
while everywhere humanity
was being deformed?
and in the new age of man
this lunatic unsublunary age
is it still valuable to be man?
to assert the old humanities?
