Holy Harmattan

You journeyed via
The Desert of Sahara,
And via the very
Gulf of Guinea
Currying up dust
And altering
Messrs Celsius and Fahrenheit

Morn, nine degrees
Noon, thirty degrees
Morn, forty eight degrees
Noon, eighty six degrees
Why arrive at Messiah's birth?
Why depart at advent of his death?
Holy Harmattan! Leave us be!

You scar our kissing tool
And make oil its companion
You lick our 'dermis
And make it scaly and dry
You paint our zapato
With dusts from Sahara
Holy Harmattan! Leave us be!

We can't wake
At sunrise
Our bladder bags can't be
Emptied  when full
But you dessicate our linen
In time and flames fan aglow
Holy Harmattan! Leave us be!

Our nostrils are weary
Of shedding blood
Our crops are weary
Of being broken
Let Mother Sun
Shine in her glory
Holy Harmattan! Leave us be!
