Music is currently banned in Mali and that even includes ring tones.
Explore.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 No music allowed
But the drumming of warheads
Brings a new meaning
To bomb-bastic beats

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 No music allowed
But the crescendo of shells
Signals conflict
Repression and siege

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 No music allowed
But the rat-a-tat-tat of gunfire
Strafes the thoroughfares
And spreads panic

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 No music allowed
But a band of warriors set forth
All ready to shoot
To victory

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 For there’s rhythm you see
Available in muse and rhyme
Of volleys and strikes
Before the referee calls time

Notes

See Crispin’s haiku: Mali 2 – 1 Niger Haiku

Editor Note: Greast poem A.Conn… Is your third name Artist?
No joke what’s going on in Mali though. So many amazing musicians and talented footballers come out of Mali and so many lives torn apart . So sad.What privileged lives we lead in comaprison.
