PEACE IN THE MANO RIVER UNION


River Mano Mano River
Love meanders along a river course
Gossip here will only seal the peace
A man of rivers will only rev a boat
To the other side to the other banks
To withdraw from bankruptcy

I am the Mano River
The collateral for true peace
The pact you signed will last
If you took me in as witness
I was born in peace that was not faked
Witnessing yours renders it fakeless

Write a song that begins with my name
Sing a song that ends with my name
Let the drummer boy talk with drums
With Mano River under the cover
Louder than street drumming and dancing
That advertises in fake tunes

The aged must learn from their young
The art of wriggling like snakes
This is the child that was born to a couple
Named Deception and Ignorance
And learn also from my doctors
How to inject morality therein

I too can dream and I got a dream
That one day my three girls will come together
And own a genuine business
From a Mother of Businesses
Headquartered in my heart
That a single coin might be tossed


And the tossing will give birth to a state
Whose greatness will be larger than the ‘You Ess’
Because it will bring many things on board
To families larger than large
That honour the grey heads
After lodging proverbs in my sentence

And that is my dream for PEACE

O Love! thou makest all things even

Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
