Tell Me - Poem by maria goodison

Tell me a story that I do not know
one that is old, that is not knowing.

Sing me song that I've never heard
and sing it true and be proud.

Tell me a rhyme that makes no sense,
just let the words run around.

Show me a book that no one has seen
and let the words spill out on the floor.

Let me dance with a crowd
and have the memory that follows on.

Tell me a story, dont hold back
I wish to know this world I live in,
but not one in a box or on a screen.

Sing me a song that only the old will know
explain why it came to be
and how it faded out the same,
oh sing that song to me.
