Haven't written anything since I was at school which is ... well let's just say .. a while ago. So here goes:<br><br>
african dust<br><br>
along the road to the farm gate<br>
where the acacias form a forest<br>
and we once had swords to<br>
fight our way through<br>
we would run until the african dust<br>
formed gray ridges between our toes<br>
and at night after too much sun and play<br>
ma would scrub us<br>
till the bath water was brown<br>
and our sun-brown knees were red<br><br>
now i hold my own ones tight<br>
and they smell of sun and innocence and life<br>
at night i wash the ridges of african dust<br>
from their feet
