he said he missed the sands of Sudan. / the blue Nile river becomes more blue \ they imprisoned him for wanting what is right. / right for the Sudanese people. \ the Sahara becomes the brightest yellow. / his friend brings him a bag full of the sand from the street he grew up on to his jail cell. \ the green farmlands become more greener. / finally they set him free \ is he truly free? feel smell view feel smell view feel smell
