Read a piece from Purple Honey Lips:
A Night Away
Descended from heaven like an angel,
My toes touched the ground.
I whisked him away from danger
Just when he was about to drown.
Away we went from traditions,
Culture, and social demands;
With an undivided attention,
His mind opened, willing to expand.
We flew over the mountaintop
And down to the valley below—
Just when he started to enjoy the ride
We landed on the ocean shore.
We sat and talked about the dos and don’ts,
What he had and had not;
We talked about the African man
And his woman too.
I asked about the woman’s role
And why he controlled her life as a whole.
Two minutes passed, he didn’t say a word,
So I whispered these words in his ears:
“Educate the African woman, my friend.
That’s the best way to go.
Raising your boys into gentlemen,
She’s your backbone, for sure.
When she rises,
The continent shall rise—
That, my friend, is gold.”
His eyes rolled around in his head,
His mouth flew open to speak,
And just before the words came flying out,
His alarm started to blow.
And he woke up to a brand-new day,
A brand-new life, I must say.
The African man, the African woman,
A partnership worth the while.
