Treasure Island

Moses Kainwo

(26th April 1955 / Freetown, Sierra Leone)


From the crammed crypt to the script
A new sun has shone on me
It is the Son from Sonzone
And He says come work with me

Be you Martha in the fore
Or that Mary wearing shawl
There’s new lease of life at work
And He says come work with me

Yet one King will have to reign
For all those who want a rain
On their apron or their scalpel
And He says come work with me

When He comes as C-E-O
And you stand up on your toes
Transformation is on us
For He says come work with me

No one jostles to see Him
He’s for one and He’s for all
The workplace is His workplace
And He says come work with me

You may have a piece of chalk
Or duster to wipe the stuff
Or that voice that pierces ears
He just says come work with me

Come stand with me in my stand
Come walk with me in my walk
Come sit with me in my seat
This is how you work with me

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
