KWANSABA FOR QUINCY TROUPE
by Reginald Lockett
Lion roaming the vast Serengeti of verse
On the Great Plains he stalks words
Dogs the scents of verbs and nous
King of musical lines tracks poetry's song
In the forest there stands his prize,
A sleek gazelle of a poem desired
He makes a quick study and pounces.
