FOR WHOM THE STORY TOLLS.


ORAL VERSION | FOR WHOM THE STORY TOLLS

For Whom The Story Tolls

From bling bling to the pollipolly
Mmy people, Mmy people.
Ya hot like piri-piri
Your lands are plenty-plenty.

Yora Chan-ga, Chokora, rockstar
Supernova paranoia helter-skelter
Daily-Dollar searching, neverever finding,
Ya pockets empty for pleasures plenty.

Living on 2 dollars-a-day and a family-of- 5
needs-a-ChrisOfili-a-YinkaShonibare-
half-a-MoshekwaLanga and 7-WangechiMutus.
How-about-a-pint of Ibrahim-El-Salhi washed down an- Iba-N’Diaye.

Oh to taste a Cheri Samba, a-Cheif Jerimoh Burumiah, a-simple-Soly Cisse, a-Charly-D’Almeida, a-Twins77 
what-about-a Ouagadougo cocktail of Emmanuel-Kavi 
mixed with Alex da Silva topped with a Suzanne Ouedraogou.
Lumumba, Gadaffi, Mugabe, Idi Ami 
mean, 
mean, 
what do I mean?
