Heart of Africa

Desert heat rushing forcibly
Towards the heart of Africa
Relentlessly meting out
His boiling wrath
Frying all grass crispy brown.
All pods shrivel in agony.

As tufts of singed grass bow low
The defeated dehydrated farmer
Crushes the roasted earth
And the ferocious sun glares
Sardonically at him.
