IMG_20160317_160953It was cool
Really cool
The breeze blowing from all poles
East, north, West all round to south

But it all seemed harsh
With a punch of harmattan
Not in the city of Manhattan
But w/n towns that utilize the use of calabash

I tossed in bed
With a feeling so blessed
But when I turned over to the other side
My smile resolved into a mortal glide

The heat has set in
Shooing off harmattan’s bid
Leaving us with in the care of hot wind
And some rashes to concede its creed
