Happy African Art Fishing in the New Year 2024
by David Norden ( with a little help of Chat GPt-4)
The sun sets on the old year, painting the sky with gold
The fishers cast their nets, hoping for a bountiful haul
They sing and dance on the shore, celebrating their culture and lore
They thank the Bemba gods for their blessings, and pray for peace and more
The moon rises on the new year, shining with silver light
The fishers bring their catch, sharing it with delight
They feast and toast on the sand, enjoying their African art and hand
They wish each other happiness, and hope for a prosperous land
