ANCIENT POEPLE


Ancient people
Filling their stomachs like a hippo
They lived by the delta
A thatched hut was there shelter

Living near the brink
Where they couldn't sink
In order to fish and drink
If they had known how crocodiles stink
Away from the river they would slink
To protect themselves in a wink

They were attached by malaria
And its sign was diarrhea
The river kept mosquitoes
And there were no hospitals

No one was abused
Hence no one was accused
Important rulers were not recognized
Were they organized?
