A Song of Hope

Sing for me
A Song
... A song of hope!

Sing for me 
A song
... Different from this
Which I hear 
everyday! 

What song do I hear
On a daily basis?
You query...

... I hear
A Song of pain
A Song of bondage
A Song of anarchy
A Song of deceit
A Song of fear
A Song of hunger
And Songs...
Of POVERTY!!!
Songs of poverty 
Amidst plenty...
Songs of the poor
Amidst the rich.

songs whose tunes
turns a man to a goat
songs whose tunes 
makes the husband's 
sigh
seem to you like the
belated bleating of a 
hungry goat
albeit the piercing 
moo
of a cow
hit by the fulani's 
staff...

The same song 
Whose tunes turns 
the
Woman to a hen.
She asks her sighing 
husband
The reason for his 
sigh
But because she is 
hit
By the same bullet
She clucks like a hen
Hot in heat!

Can anybody sing to 
me?
...A song of hope.
A song which will
Ease the pain of my 
people...

...A song of hope.
A song which will
Ease the burning in 
my heart...

...A song of hope.
A song which will
Bring salvation to my 
kindred...

...A song of hope.
A song which will
Bring smiles to our 
smileless faces...

Is there any
Out there with such 
a song?
If there is...
Let (s)he come fast 
and furious
With the songs
Accompaniments let 
him bother not
About. Lots of them 
have we!

Just come
Come along to us
With the song.
Ready are we
With instruments
And vocals.
Just come 
To sing for us
... A song of hope!!!
