Like The Fulani Poem by samuel nze


Rub off all your sins
Ere you stretch yourself
Onto your prayer mat
Like the fulani
Cleanse your soul of dirt
Wash your dress with bleach
A pedicure will help
And some Arabic scent
Like the fulani
If your hands are clean
And your clothes are neat
If your hair is cut
Your feet free of mud
Like the fulani
You may enter mosque
You may sing and pray
Fast and raise the chant
Like the fulani.
