Ms. Africa

by Michael D. Pinner


Ms. Africa

Your soil be the riches
gratefully valued and held as benedictions
for your birth gods
kings queens
and the utmost of superior warriors
known throughout the world

Beneath your surface
reside diamonds
and even oil
elements that seem to rule the world

Your beauty
every nation and nationality longs to see
even the Isley Brothers
spoke of sailing the Atlantic
always coming back to you
your love
fruitful and divine
colorful and blind
you are liberty essence
the motherland of all time

I've yet to breathe your air
or feel the hot rays from the sun your
climate produces
yet to conversate with my look-alikes on that
dreamed about shore
but I'm thankful and aware of you being my

I send love and greetings
to all the mothers throughout the world
and I had to show my appreciation to you
I am a descendant of your eternal civilization
I wrote this one here for you

Happy Mother's Day
