Zanzibar



Jambo Sana

And welcome to Zanzibar


A group of islands in East Africa

That belong to the nation of Tanzania


1.3 million people

Live on land that’s far from equal


But that’s nothing new

So enjoy your travels and view


You will find plenty of beautiful beaches

Many will leave you speechless


The sporty youth is always in motion

Running and playing by the Indian Ocean


The water is so turquoise

You won’t believe your eyes


Watch out you don’t burn your skin

Although it’ll make the locals grin


The roads are busy and bumpy

And aren’t fixed because of… well money


99% of inhabitants are muslim

The remainder is indigenous and Christian


Other nations used to control the entire village

Namely the Portuguese, Omani & British


It’s quite a peaceful place

There’s no gold, oil or diamond to chase


Only cloves & other spices

And of course fresh papaya slices


To some Zanzibar is everyday reality

To me it reveals a lot about humanity
