Zita


The zeal in Tema crowns your views,
With the sea breeze to cool your mind;
But who the cap fits must wear it always in this life.
Life is like that and,
I am the parrot that speaks through the thing air;
With words so sweet to educate you over there,
But do keep the fire burning always to enhance your name.
You are Zita, and life is all around you;
So keep the fire burning to gain a better future.

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
