AFRICAN CHILD

Ah! 
Daily 
life 
is 
hash.
Mmmh, 
what 
a 
life,
no 
father, 
No 
mother. 
Mmh, 
hunger 
is 
beating 
my 
middle 
belt.
The 
soapseller 
hawks 
her 
wares, 
but 
if 
i 
cant 
wash 
my 
outside?
Hmmm, 
is 
nite 
again.
The 
street 
dark 
Ah! 
The 
nite 
and 
again 
the 
nite.
The 
day 
with 
hunger, 
tomorrow.
Tomorrow 
is 
empty 
and 
naked.
 It's 
day 
break
i 
feed 
on 
the 
sun
i 
sleep 
in 
the 
rain.
No 
roof, 
No 
shelter.
 What 
should 
i 
do?
Alas! 
I'm 
the 
African 
child!!!
