about

Three Orphaned African boys, protect each other from gangsters and rebel groups recruiting child soldiers; They keep HepC and AIDS at bay by resisting the call of infected choir girls, their voices, tempting, echoing from the Church; together they conquer illiteracy and poverty. Having survived to manhood, they share their poetry with the world.

lyrics

Three Merry Boys
Make your own toys
Your mamma's gone with Hep C
Girls sing in church with HIV
They Smile at you
They're lonely
They're lonely

Slums and Poets
They sleep deeper
Nobodies Child
No one to keep ya
Nothing simple
About the simple life
Took your final first steps
The day your Mama died

Are you lonely
Lonely

(Repeat)

Death take me easy
The living was hard
