Come. And be my baby. / The highway is full of big cars / going nowhere fast / And folks is smoking anything that''ll burn / Some people wrap their lives around a cocktail glass / And you sit wondering / where you''re going to turn. / I got it. / Come. And be my baby. / Some prophets say the world is gonna end tomorrow / But other ssay we''ve got a week or two / The paper is full of every kind of blooming horror / And you sit wondering / what you''re gonna do. / I got it. / Come. And be my baby. / Maya Angelou ( b. 1928) / Reprinted with permission of Virago from Just Give Me A Cool Drink of Water ''Fore I Diiie (c) Maya Angelou 1971 / Poems on the Underground
