Boston Poems

Dedicated to Marley

She dance as he sang

*Don’t let me down…keep a riding’

As he swings his locks to and fro

Dancing, prancing back and forth

She saw the seriousness of his mind

She heard his roar

She watched him reason

She admired him from a far

She felt proud of him

She salutes him

She felt his spirit

She felt God’s power over him

And she vow to the heavens

Above, to carry on the works

For peace just like him.

*song from Bob Marley-Midnight Ravers
