    Look at Babylon in darkness
    these fools marvel and wonder
    when in the slums we chuckle
    26 years ago lights out time out
    Babylon beware
    when judgment strikes
    the beast cannot fight
    all we hear is shrieking sirens
    the devil in distress
    a big media hype in the press
    regular crap from the telievision
    this is a prelude to the Apocalyse
    divine terrorism or computer worms
    darn my time in Babylon is done
    no more pollution and traffic jams
    no more racism and pale faces
    exodus back to the motherland
    no electricity just good ol charcoal
    it was the blackout of 2003.

    An ode to all African villages that survive without electricity....
