Sample poem, written by a student in B6. What argument is she making?

Dry your tears, Africa!

Your children come back to you.

Ooh! Mama Africa,

Ooh, how strong you are!

But they know nothing about you;

They don’t know the happiness you bring into our lives.

Society might deny you,

But you the strongest.
