Muses - Poem by ENOCH JOHN

I've asked Clio the muse of history to re-examine all the papyrus,
Of Kush, Numidia, The Neolithic Dhar Tichitt, Jenne-jeno, Bazin, Nagash,
Gumma, Jimma, Timbuctu and indeed the entire African continent,
So that a true history will emerge that will show the majesty and grandeur of Africa.
Calliope has given us the best of Homer with the Iliad and Odyssey,
While Euterpe has inspired many a lyric poem and we have read of the work of poets inspired by Erato; the love poems and sonnets.
