African Girl


There was once an African girl i met
she was really out this planet
she was as sweet as pearl
and had smooth dark skin like silk
her black skin's colour fadeless
Africans are really the best
oh what a masterpiece
a jewel amongst bones
everyone was dazed
at her thick dark hair
and at her sweet brown lips
they all stood and gazed
i fell into a gutter
just staring at this work of art

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
