Nubian Life Blossoms

Nubian life
Blossoms as the energetic
Young guns
Embrace new values with
Boundless enthusiasm

The lost boy
In his element
Riding
A giant kangaroo
In the field of dreams

They flee
From Africa’s long wars and
Found
A haven among the gum trees
Chasing the Australian dream

Ah, the Nubian
Scholars in hot pants;
Taking
To education (and training)
Like ducks to water

Behold
A child of two worlds
Text-messaging
The future with gusto; building
Bridges over the racial divide

With unique
Talents and perspectives they
Graced
Antipodean cities like the
Cosmic messengers of peace
