To Save Timbuktu


Is water worth more in the desert 
Than the bright diamonds that sparkle   

Crystal transparent particles, that flows 
The same, in need, in want, to have, to own 

In its perspective value enough to kill for 
In its desired richness to be had 

What of camels, yes camels 
Are camels worth more in the desert 

Than the stud bred for the grand national 
Dressage for Olympic gold medals 

Who would carry me to free Timbuktu 
To save those old manuscripts that holds my history
