African Magic

Rating: 5.0
Five hundred soldiers,
Coming to slay us like hungry lions.

A ten feet tall wall,
Surrounds the city with an unguarded gate.

Twenty-eight hundred preys,
Calm and relaxed.

A prey stands,
Blows a horn,

Five hundred soldiers,
Now do the conga.

Jingling a calabash full of coweries,
The soldiers turn against themselves.

African Magic
Nothing beats it.
