My African headache is bigger than the continent itself
My problems denser than the forest of Congo
People look at me and say, you are strong
I am strong like the might buffalo
Or strong like the elephant
Yet the slowly kill me spirit.
My African headache is bigger than all the seas around the world
My problems more dangerous than the white mans poisons
Yet people look at me and say you are beautiful
Which beauty do they talk about?
The gap between my teeth or the fulness of my buttocks?
This African headache has followed me to Oyibo land
I hear a phone ring and I curse whoever invented the phone
I take two Tylenols and then call back
My blood pressure needs to be monitored
Too many peoples issues from Africa
Has given me an African headache
