by Farasi

One book to Ethiopia costs 
More than three together 
Staying with us but I promised 
There it goes to Bahir Dar
Where I will never go save 
By email and maps cheapest 
Way I said still more than I 
Paid for it second hand 
Like the tee shirts they wear 
For magazine pictures selling 
Single cigarettes yams pills 
From street to street.
