Manga - Poem by Manonton Dalan

yes, i was once to africa
green fruit we call 'manga'
i can reach with my hand
shape like half of a heart
no wonder it's sour for me
when ripe sweet as candy

they grow along roads, shed
for kids from scorching sun
while walking going for errand
i love their music, powerful beat
good for dancing brings sweat
i watch these kids really into it

***
manga(mango) in accra, ghana
