Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!

For Wayne

From a continent, so far
Away, you came

Out of Cape Town, South Africa,
You came

From the shores of Table Bay,
From the foot hills of Table
Mountain, you came

Into a new world! Into a different
World, into America... you came

Out of D.C., out of Adams Morgan,
Out of Kilimanjaro, I found you, and
You came

Into my life, out of friendship, out of
Love and understanding, you came

Across the waters of the Potomac, to
A little place called Alexandria,
Virginia... you came

You found me, as I had found you, and
We discovered our being; and I'm so
Glad you dropped in... I'm so happy
You was fun!
