The Prince Of Ethiopia

they named him Lalibela
because 'the bees followed him'-
was he the chosen prince
hand-picked by the Most High
to restore the Christian Faith
in the distant Horn-of-Afrika
where the Children of the Levites
had finally put to rest
a Gift of YHWH to Man...
by which hand or magic force
did the Prince of Ethiopia
crack open the solid rocks
so as to expose
all the Churches of Stone-
someday I will say a prayer
a prayer, to the Most High!
in the mountains of Ethiopia
in the churches of Lalibela
