Vera

VERA

Vera lived the Precambrian Era
Descended from Lucy, you know
She lived in the Lake Toba caldera
Where Tilapia Mossambica grow

She and her family fished all their days
In the Indian Ocean, their home
They watched the Tofo Manta Rays
Gliding over the Sri Lanka dome

She wore mother of pearl in her ears
She wore rings of Aceh coral on her toes
She carved wooden fishing spears
From the heart of the black palm she chose

She lived out her days in the tropical waves
Of the Indian Ocean, her home
Where the hot tropical sun blazed
Where the Tilapia Mossambica grow
