“Long Poem” (a singing poem)

By, Afua Serwah Osei-Bonsu

Immigration, to ride the roller coaster, to get an ice cream, the addict

All lines long, all lines long, all lines long, all lines long!

To purchase the page turner, one without homework, the actor, the criminal

All lines long, all lines long, all lines long, all lines long!

The sage, the vows, the bible, the grocery

All lines long, all lines long, all lines long, all lines long!

Homer, the gossip, the lonely, the concert tickets

All lines long, all lines long, all lines long, all lines long!

Dad can you write me a letter, “yes, my dad sends me money, I am a student”

Hey no cutting, hey! hey! I said no cuts!

The lines were too long, she left Dairy Queen for McDonalds

He paraded her around an artist’s den, the lines were so long

Long, long, long,   long, long, long,  long, long, long,   long, long, long- LONG!

A long, so long, a long, so long, a long, so long, a long, so long,  slong!

Oh wood block printer! Oh, oh, oh, wood block printer!

He hoisted his trunk to my fornacula.

Long, long, long,   long, long, long,  long, long, long,   long, long, long- LONG!

A long, so long, a long, so long, a long, so long, a long so long,  slong!
