    Let me be yo Nile rivers
    White, Blue, and Red Sea heat lover
    Don't be afraid cuz a girl like me
    Can quickly
    Conquer yo Chad, Nigeria, and Mali
    I'll slowly lick across yo Kenya, Uganda, and Ghana
    If you let me, Let me travel yo Africa

    Let me walk slowly across yo blazing hot Sahara
    And I'll eagerly let you lick up and down my Egyptian pyramids
    Just to get a chance to be on top of yo Arab and Mediterranean on different latitude grids
    I want to travel yo latitude’s highs, lows, and don't forget about the mids
    Rake across Utopian eye lips
    And have yo please me too..........with not one spot hid
    If you let me, Let me travel yo Africa

    Let me be that blazing hot sun that settles at yo equator
    Sucking you slowly because I'm yo sensual lover
    And eventually putting my sweet Tunisia
    On top of yo Somalia
    Creating a sweet vibration that extends high waves all the way to the MADAGASCAR
    If you let me, Let me travel yo Africa

    Can I be that girl that makes yo Morocco make noise
    That girl that travels yo Congo
    and Togo
    And make you want mo'
    Mo' of the sensual pleasure I give to you when I travel yo sweet Africa
    I mean, if you let me, Let me travel yo Africa

    Let me be that BLACK girl that goes to place a girl my color never has
    I'm talking about yo Tanzania
    Somalia
    Ethiopia
    Gambia
    and Algeria
    Where every place I travel I admire yo lean
    mean
    fighting machine
    If you let me, Let me travel yo Africa

    I want to travel yo marshes
    deserts
    and seas
    Just to get a chance at thee
    Just let me
    Let me be that lady
    That make you scream heavenly
    And so loudly
    from torment that I am looked at as godly
    Can I?
    Can I?
    Can I travel yo sweet Africa?

    No way should a poem with such depth of flow be off the front page yet. Gently placing it back up. This piece still makes me say, WOW.
