Cover Me...Am Going In - Poem by Simon Odhiambo

Was born first, bred and grown
On this earth, thick and not so brown
I have loved, laughed and also frowned
My sweat can be seen and also shown
Now my seeds old and all too grown
The button well passed and not thrown
To my son and girl the race to own
It's their turn to swim or else they drown
From now Am gone and not to be known
Cover me, as I go in my airy tomb of stone
On my own, am gone and just alone
I pray for silence and not a single moan
And now I sleep to be with my only man

Cover going in.
