DestiNation Africa

by Linda Hayes

Let me take you on a ride
we'll travel through time and space,
destination Africa 
birthplace of the human race.

We'll journey back to Africa
to where it all began,
home of the oldest tribe on Earth
known as the San Bushman.

All aboard the time machine
otherwise known as our blood,
we'll have no trouble getting around
with Y-Chromosomes under the hood.

Imagine tracing man's origin
and the clues that lead the way,
are mutated generic markers
that are found in man's DNA.

Through Europe, Asia, The Middle East
as our blood trail takes us back,
we learn all men are paternally related
be they red, yellow, brown, white or black.

Brothers killing brothers
that's what we're doing today,
for the proof that we're all related
lies in our DNA.
