African Queen

28 Mar
Lake Victoria
the source of the river Nile
watered papaya

the Nile river coils
like a snake through Uganda
plantain and peanuts

fishing for Nile perch
along side of crocs and hippo
fillets for a year

Nilotic people
tall well muscled large boned
gleaming like the river

Lake Victoria
the queen of fertility
for the African
