MEN OF THE NILE

Men of the Nile


Since our water is now blood
Should we thirst for ourselves?
We need the feel of flood
To sweep our troubles past

Find us a way through the wave
Long tides yet less we pave
If all our voyage could be a rave
Yet more than this we crave

Neck deep in the sea
We thirst still
Colours thicker than tea
Can we see past this?

In sight we seem nigh land
Yet in fact, we are nine times far
As a child we felt the comfort of the glands
Thoughts of which comfort comes forth

Men of the Nile, here we sigh
Our gaze as though to the sky
Rum rum suspends us high
Only should we not stay belief shy. 

THE INVINCIBLE PEN

    This is a stellar poem. This is something i would read out of a reputable magazine. Excellent! It's like you're telling a story with feeling.
