WORLDS APART

Written by: anguslaz anokute

You said you have, and I have not anything – You are monied, and I am down and helpless So let me alone to my fate to go Away from you to my lonely abode To on my lonely bed rest, and romance poverty And sing her praises that is my newfound love And enjoy to the fullest over empty laughs that never crossed teeth: The world has treated me so. You said you have, and I have not anything – You are monied, and I am down and helpless So let me alone to my fate to go Away from you to my lonely abode To timelessly dine and wine with poverty On a tableless banquet of sad memories and sorrows And sing praises to the one who brought me here: The world has treated me so. You said you have, and I have not anything – You are monied, and I am down and helpless So let me alone to my fate to go Away from you to my lonely abode To enjoy rest of mind in free sweet cry And the rivers, Niger and Benue, flood with innocent hot tears Of a man who knows not what next to do, where to go next– The world has treated me so.
