Golden Key

In a bizarre way I stood awhile Watching the unfolding melodrama Got the hint: Our Queen's Lady in Waiting Has misplaced our golden key. Like an eagle must she fly From Gabon to Gambia From Mali to Morocco Search for the snake, the poisonous snake, rip open its bowels To find the African key. Our Queen would have to wait Outside the palace Would she delay for days And when the king arrives Back early from Europe What would he say? These folks who do not believe in divorce What would you say? Should our king A royal fray begin? Who could tell the king Our most powerfully revered king? Who could tell the king: Our Queen's Lady in Waiting Has his most cherished instrument misplaced? Now has the journey began From Gambaga to Paga From Awudome to Avetime To hunt for the black monster Who is keeping our king's key In its dark belly.
