Africa - The Cultural Base - Poem by Michael Popoola

African cultural base
'home of unique heritage
'check the Pharol’s array
'compass the boundary
'see the bright Yorubas

Welcome home,
'paradise city, Zulu’s archetype
'most bravura place on earth
'diverse people, unique black
'chocolate colour, brown beauty
'green array, canopy sites
'Hausa’s pride, maroon Central

Monkey’s drama, cutter’s parable
'story of tortoise, elephant - ‘big for nothing’
'home made parrot, arrow bird
'intelligent sparrows, pea pride
'speaking river, powerful highlands
'evil forest, paradox of valley
'healing fens and lilies
'distinctive people

Select your dancing pattern
'take a cool drink under shed
'enjoy nature at its peak
