Saying ‘hello’ around the world
is more than a vocal projection
It’s a movement of lips, swaying of hips,
and at times complete physical expression
Saying ‘hello’ in Asia,
calls for your best leaf of tea
While Europeans make do
with much less conventionally!
For Africans and Caribbean’s alike,
the cordiality of our 'say'...
could make ‘hello’ in the morning,
last until well past midday!
