Harmattan don come again ooooooh - Mariska Taylor-Darko

Cracked lips
Not good for a kiss

Split heels
Not good for the sheets

Dry skin
Not good for man

Static Hair
Not good for the comb

Dry white dust
Not good for the houseproud

Icy nostrils
Very good for shea butter

A hot bowl of light soup
Just right for the insides

Harmattan! Na wa ooooh

"Harmattan don come again ooooooh" is the third of our series of poems on the Harmattan. New entries will be posted each week, and collected here.
