Mortal(s) by  Collins Paris

The great waves

Of the mighty river Nile

Are the floods of tears

Of our ancestors cried long ago

Bear the pain when you are hurt

Because mortal(s) are subjected to pain

The green lushes of fields

On human flesh they feed

Under those fat trees

Lies bodies of our ancestors

Death is our fate, oh man never prolong life

Because mortal(s) are subjected to death

Young, strong and polished faces yes are for todays 

Old, weak and wrinkled faces are for tomorrows

Age and sickness come as the days grow weak... Live and grow

Because mortal(s) are subjected to grow wrinkles on their face

Live and grow...
