Quite Right
I’m in Timbuktoo

Extremely Rich became Mysterious
and in this Capitalistic Universe
Dear Wikipedia, it is now
Impoverished and Desertified.

An extremely unlikely place to be
With rebels from every war
Looking for Azawad’s Golden Age.
Unfortunately for them it’s
Bookishness to the extreme.

But a  mecca
for English translators.
Unless I find one
I won’t be “back soon.”
