    Dream of Accra

    City of AntsIn their pants, it’s the modern social dance,With their masks on and flasks drawn,They sing familiar chants with the break of dawn;They’ll approach us as they please,Take us where we need to be,We’ll do the job with easeAnd they can pay us in cedis,Then Kofi and I can get a little highOn a Friday night in late July,And the dusty sky said surprise, surpriseAnd the sun did rise ‘fore I closed my eyesAnd my oh my, the obruni sighs,It’s been quite some time since I lived my life…City of AntsIn a stance, ready to march on city limits,Ready to barge in any minuteOn their unsuspecting victims,And with ‘em comes a quantum of suspicion,Of wooden eyes and superstitions,Of crooked cries and inhibitions,But with ease, we’ll take these, our leavesInto the arms of mama breeze,She comes across the desert and she’ll carry us to seaAnd provide rejuvenation in this ancient summer heat,With the citrus sun above us and the lemon sharks beneath,And later in the evening when I’m troubled counting sheepI’ll think of thee, ma belle amie, and get myself some sleep.

Classics has chicken nuggets and mac’n’cheese—we’ll see. The Grill has Texas-style grilled cheese—that’s an option. But alas, the Deli has the caprese special on focaccia. Today is a good day.”
