By. M. M. mwanakijiji Wondering, and hoping, and praying That itll all be alright! That my country will rise and be A nation, and it will take its place among the nations Of the World and itll be a rightful place. But our rulers keep telling us, just wait! They tell us to wait, When we ask about corruption, And when we question their intentions They come back with political intimidation That if we dont stop, therell be a confrontation, So they tell us people! just wait! We have been waiting For almost fifty years, and counting, For the promises they keep giving And the giving they keep promising. That, some day as a nation we will make it through So, we should as they say, just wait! That we should wait, As they carry some investigations Of the so perceived corruption What I see is a perfect situation Of that grand illusion! How long though, should we just wait? Screw waiting! Bob Marley before me Wondered the same, about waiting, How long shall they kill our prophets While we stand this side and look he said, And we the people of Tanzania Should we sit down, and wait! How long shall we wait As they squander the money Abuse the offices, and the honey Desecrate the State House Asked for the cause They look at us, eti just wait! The time has come for them to act To tackle corruption not with illusion But with actions that will remove any tension To create a nation that is filled with a notion That waiting is not an option! Otherwise, Just Wait!
