3 o’clock Monday

I belong in Africa
Let’s go
All of us
the lions, the dirt,
those people in red robes
who pose with spears

We belong in Africa
day care
forced naptimes
unreturned phone calls
eight thirty to five

We don’t have to do this
Just a little bit longer this
We belong in Africa
the school bus won’t take us there

Gorillas and forest and waterfalls
free
freer
freedom
