Father of Hope

An enriched bountiful heart
With the power of wealth
On a zenith pilgrimage
Of the golden age of ages

Leaving decadence footprints
Woven in maps of opulence
Lavishing the poor
Converting the whores

Brocades draped over slaves
An entourage of silk brigades
A journey of sand miles
Lead by gold dust camels

To an enlightened path
Guided by jeweled staffs
Chronicled of his reign
Compassion without chains

I had a conversation about Mansa. I did some research
and was intrigued he was considered one of the richest people on earth. Even wrecked some economies back in the day with his gift giving on his pilgrimage to Mecca. Just wanted to write something different and a little edgy.

He was also called Father of Hope
