There is a ray of light
In the darkest, deep eyes
Behind the miserable face of that African boy.
There is an emptiness to fill
-With a naughty and enigmatic smile.

After this uncertain scene
I’m still felling blue
Dogged closely by that little creature
I’m so worried, I’m so busy…
And this annoying baby is disturbing me:
-Hey boy, c’mon! Your halo is shying the Moon!
