After Mr Huang's retreat...

Africa called

You heard and came

You fell in love with Africa

You stroked her rough grass

Planted African trees

In her dry earth

Wept at her confusion an anger

You gave Africa your heart and found


Africa did not expect you

Made no preparation

Did not show her

company face

sneered, ignored you

even beat you

Them as you rose to leave


Africa fell in love

with you

Our Amitabha

Don’t go….
