"A Far Cry from Africa" is a poem by Derek Walcott that explores the history of a specific uprising or war in Kenya that went on for 8 long years in the 1950s. The title speaks for itself, if not for this poem maybe none of us would have known about the war.

The lotus was considered a sacred flower by ancient Egyptians and was used in burial rituals. This flower blooms in rivers and damp wetlands, but may lie dormant for years during times of drought, only to rise again with the return of water. Egyptians viewed it as a symbol of resurrection and eternal life.
