This is an excerpt from Wedi Tiquabo's lyric that I translated into English. It is a prophetic and insightful as such.
Those from the North
South, West and East
Are radiant with diamond
>From underneath their feet
Some gold has been mined
The more the virgin land exploited
The more metals will be extracted.
But this could be hampered
Amid those who change colors
Like people in a wolf skin
Predators of country’s wealth
By creating schism and ethnic unrest.
They betrayed their fellow men and women
As the very accomplices
Of alien elements.
Oh, my country
It is not surprising.
