Treasure Island

kemurl fofanah


Bogus jaws, loosening boastful claims of hisk love

'He is my life, she's my heart's tendering dove'

'I could not sleep, eat nor smile without you'

'The world is an isle of eternal isolation if our spirit can't glue'

'I have build your statue in my memories'

'I have summoned nature's gentility to perfect our love stories'

'Come let fashioned our body in extacyy'

Come let spoil our innocence with a remarkable

Deceiving jaws spitting these words

They never mentioned a moral accords

Besides, society lashes morality away

They claims, two youth marrying is immorality sway

But isn't that better than rubbing their innocence

Isn't that better than murdering our ancestors presence

The world is drowning in pools of fatherless babies

the west is the west. Their value is a curse in our hobbies

We are africans, our lives is rounded by moral dews

But we sit smiley watching the rape our marriage values

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
