Inspired by the 48 hour challenge: Media Prompt (Toto - Africa)
Toto are not in Kansas anymore

Instead they are in Africa
Blessing rain once more

The drums they echo in the night
Beaten with hands so sweaty

A hundred men or more
On the plains of the Serengeti

Wild dogs grow restless
Barking at the sand

While I long for the company of forgotten words
From a desperate, lonely man

I heard it takes a lot to drag a person away from here
But it’s so hot and I’m so thirsty

I wish I had a beer
