Treasure Island

Samweli Butobi

(Mwanza Tanzania)

Tell me

before you meet and tell me
how will I know you about me
how will I enjoy your company
how can I find out, a person you are

how can I take you on a date
how ca n I make out with you
how can i tell my self about you
have friend ship with you

if youn cant mee me out there
how can you do all these
dont fear just confident,
just meet me and tell me

your eyes betray you about me
I can read your window to soul
that you have something in you
just meet me and tell me

Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
