Land of my Birth

Poem
by Gilbert Kuma


Another  bright  morning,
The  birds  welcome  the  day  melodiously,
My  radio  talks.

Another  grant  for  poor  Africa,
Poor  Africa,
Wait  a  minute  newsman,
Come  with  me,
To  smell  gold  in  South  Africa,
To  drill  oil  in  Nigeria,
To  touch  ivory  in  Ivory Coast,
To  taste  cocoa  in  Ghana,
To  chew  groundnuts  in  Senegal,
To  trek  with animals  in  Kenya,
To  pilgrimage  to  the  pyramids  in  Egypt,
To  buy  diamonds  in  Zambia,
Africa  poor,

I  don’t  get  it.

BRING THIS PICTURE AND POEM TO CLASS NEXT TUESDAY(You need NOT print it>>copy it, bring it in your cell phone, netbook or other mobile device)

SILLY ME! I HAD REMOVED THE VIDEO :-(

 (Oops, sorry. I 'm afraid I had removed the video. But here it is again)

So, let's get started

PARTS OF SPEECH (in brief)

  1. NOUNS: they refer to people, objects, etc
  2. PRONOUNS: they replace nouns
  3. VERBS: they show actions or states
  4. ADJECTIVES: they modify nouns.
  5. ADVERBS: they modify verbs, adjectives and other adverbs.
  6. PREPOSITIONS: they relate a noun or pronoun to its object.
  7. CONJUNCTIONS: they join words, phrases, clauses.
  8. INTERJECTIONS: they show excitement or emotion.



For next class bring:
  1. this list with PARTS OF SPEECH (complete list!!!)
