Museum Tales 4: African Mannequin

African Mannequin

I am light I am dark

I am the midday sun of the Sahara

I am the lion in the grass of the Savannah

I am life I am joy

I can be girl I can be boy

I am the zebra on the hoof

I am here to reclaim your youth

I am fire I am water

I’m your son and your daughter

I am the hunt but not the kill

I can shock and I can thrill

I am the you you wish to be

Look in the mirror–

It is always I you see
