African Praise Song

http://web.cocc.edu/cagatucci/classes/hum211/coursepack/praisesongs.htm

Hoe
Iron hoe says hu
All day; iron palm
Finger tip
Hole in the handle fits
Iron in: hafted like man and woman
Bent neck
Slenders to the grip
Poor man works with it
Rich man works with it
Who has a hoe hangs on
Even an orphan grows
By dint of:
Sun, fatigue, content.
