I Knew This Man - Poem by Ray Anyasi

i knew this man some years ago

dearly beloved by four and two

back to fro his love went too

five of five he was and served

so to him a reward well deserved

I knew this man some years ago

worked the woods and suffered stings

lo among the rich he lives and pings

to whom benevolence was a reflex

and nothing came along was complex

i knew this man some years ago

who in zodiac learns a fable

and in unity became so able

over the Niger citadel he grew a lion

then he joined this army in Zion

i knew this man some years ago

he fell in love and changed his mind

now he hard sought someone to find

stood a lie to cute fairy tale damsel

how he christened her his own damisel

i knew this man some years ago

has broad shoulders and bulging chest

his time and strength he did well invest

i knew this man who loved himself

i knew this man in none but myself
