African poems

EXPOSED: Obama in the eyes of a poet.

Posted on


Credo Mutwa’s predictions has a history of accuracy. In this poem, he captures his prediction of America’s president.

He wrote a poem about him and he views him as “an actor upon the floodlit stage of life wearing a mask of an angel beneath a demon’s gown”.
Accordingly, he says Obama “pretends smiles upon the crowded hall of life holding much hope as much as bright as it is false. ”
In a nutshell, he says “Africa will gladly look to Obama, but the truth is that he is a son born to deceive:”

Text from the Poem.
“You are Barack, oh, son born to deceive
“The suffering hoards of Africa look up to you,
“See a black saviour where nought but a Judas strides.
“An entrapper of nations, bringer of dismal war Behind the robes and the nylon wings of hope
“Oh, may those who look upon you, see you as you are.
“May those who hope in you behold you as you be
“A prince deceitful to bring down Africa’s shrines
“A siren who leads Africa’s ships onto rocks of obliteration.
“Your rule my lord will not be one of peace
“Your reign my king will not be one of smiles
“Even as we speak in caves both dark and dank.
“Enraged fanatics plot your dark demise
“They will put around your head a bloodwet martyr’s crown.
“Oh black Kennedy following the one before
“May God forgive thee and thy fiery spouse
“As you walk in silence from the stage of life…”

The million dollar question is “What if Credo Mutwa is right? Who really is Obama? Questions and more questions!
