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...
