Rookie - 20 Points (25th, Sept.1961 / Lagos-Nigeria)

Mogadishu Fish Market

As the sun marches on, shortening shadows
Smoothly they come with the fading light
But soon raves and rant fill the air
Signalling the start to the homo-sapiens fish feast
In the thick of the free flowingly smoky haze
Damsels dance about adorned alluringly to attract
The sea of the city ravenous dwellers
Whose yearning, taste and thirst are filled to full
By the magical sapid the fish banquet can make good
Even children little as one-year old filed in tow
All deeds done and bottom dusted, homes they head
Such is the mystic of the rich fish rituals of Mogadishu

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
