“Tears on Cheek of Africa” My Original Abstract Art

My Original Abstract Art “Tears on Cheek of Africa”

The love with lands surrounded by
the Mediterranean sea to north,
Sinai Peninsula keeps a house with whom?
Suez and red having room. Forest and her ancient folk
always in our feelings and talk,
All the mankind having so curious
You,more I think mysterious. Beauty of her smile peeking, a truth
I know the truth, the truth.
The photographer committing suicide
never conceding the painful sight. A monster throwing away foods
In the water, children of you
Crying crying for a grain.
The moribund acting his last sequence
Why? a vulture waiting, a question. I love you, consider mother of lions
Smile revealing a secret, oh Africa!

What I Learnt Today : Tourists can buy live animals as keychains and lucky charms in China

image credit An amazing & also shocking information is just waiting for you. You must be astonished when you hear the truth about the components used to make some sort of keychains in China. In China some sort of keychains are made with live animals. These special keychains are made for tourists.
