Tongas son Part 1

By 22nd May 2010December 9th, 2019No Comments

In the green jungle, where the soft winds blew
A gentle boy child was born. There he grew
For he was the son of Tonga the hero
And he was blessed, as he began to grow.

Vaduz the elephant sang at his birth
Bellowing so loudly for all his worth
In this green jungle where the soft winds blew
The trails were trodden by the very few.

Abu the jungle boy grew strong and tall
Learning the ways of the elephant call
Swinging through trees with the giant gorilla
Abu the boy: Friend of snakes that slither.

Into the jungle, on those fateful days
There came some humans with such wicked ways
They were just intent on robbing kings graves
Capturing villagers, making them slaves.
