Apple-Pie - Poem by Edward Kofi Louis
Rhinoceros, buffalo, aaligator, fox and leopard! !
Of the rain on my side to wait for you;
But, the snake came along with the words of war.
Lion, tiger, elephant, crocodile and the rabbit!
Of this rivder to cross in the land of my muse;
But, the eagle came along with the words of joy.
Drinking 'Palm-wine' and 'Pito' on this journey,
And like a philosophical colloquy that lasted into the wee hours!
But, the story of the weathger was also part of it.
Suddnely! ! A snake hurried across!
And darkness fell unto us all;
But this apple-pie and the creamed cake gave us hope,
And like the rice and chicken with pawpaw that we ate last night.
Enter into the world so sweet! !
And like the bibulous man next door;
Just like the state of my mind on thisd long journey.
I am very artful to my words,
I am very mindful to my works,
I am very watchful on this road;
And to put things in the right place is like my sweet muse of love,
So, i always need this apple-Pie around for my strength.
