The Zanzibar Chest.




I a lot have said,
Of the books I have read,
But among the best,
Is ĎThe Zanzibar Chestí,
Showing war which is gory,
Has as well its story.

In Rahwanda,
And Somalia,
Aidan Hartley,
Did a great deal see,
And as over all the god of war did lord,
He did much record,
But you in the papers wonít this read,
So to read the book you need,
If you would history comprehend,
So you can when necessary the truth defend.

------

This is such a difficult story to tell I canít help but feel
that this book is excellent
in both an artistic and historical sense.
