The General

Painted by David Inhaca Mozambique
General Carmona I presume
John with his mischievous grin
Do you come here often?
I didn’t want him
But we took him in

Tugging down east coast to the Mother City
We touched you up in a golden frame
Filled in your ballpoint moustache
Will you travel often will you travel far
Will you get to know who
Who we really are?

I look into your eyes for hours
In the end always me who turns away

Black and white Adam Park Singapore
To City Beach WA
Waving Munjon goodbye
You crossed the ocean
We crossed the sky
Same destination
Safe and warm all be home and dry

You travelled often
You travelled far
You got to know who
Who we really are
