Mother Burma, Mother Africa

Africa Mother Africa,

Home to us,

Sing a song of Ubuntu,

Ethiopian red wine,

Merlot blood,

Coursing through my veins tonight,

Laser light,

Electric bass,

Dirty South,

We of the chosen blood,

Hagia Sophia,

Sultan Ahmet,

Vibrating hips,

Electric bass,

Mysterious three AM,

At night in the heat,

Under the cloak of dark,

In the hidden darkness,

A new Soul is reborn under red laser light,

My folk,

Accept me into this new world,

Love me,

White as Snow,

Accept me with your sexy hips,

Mother Burma,

Mother Africa,

Global South accept me,

Lover of small men,

Lover of the poor,

Let me be a small man,

Shrink me,

Oh, God to fit in here.


About kayaerbil

I am a Berkeley educated chemistry Ph.D. who is moving into the area of working on developing appropriate technology for communities that are subjected to socio-economic oppression. The goal is to use simple and effective designs to empower people to live better lives. Currently, I am working with Native Americans on Pine Ridge, the Lakota reservation in South Dakota. I am working with a Native owned and run solar energy company. We are currently working on building a compressed earth block (CEB) house that showcases many of the technologies that the company has developed. The CEB house is made of locally derived resources, earth from the reservation. The blocks are naturally thermally insulating, keeping the house cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Eventually, a solar air heater and photovoltaic panels will be installed into the house to power the home and keep it warm, while preserving the house off the grid. A side project while in Pine Ridge is a solar computer. I hope to learn about blockchain encryption software for building microgrids. In addition, it is an immediate interest of mine to involve local youth in technology education.
