Moreno
Let your legend
be told
around camp fires
Not through Chains
and Bullwhips
But through Areitos
and Tambor Sessions.
Last of the Bakongo
First of the
Bata Beating
Ashe Healing
Shaka Zulu
Ashanti
Dahomey
Warrior Princes
Moreno
you speak in fire
and move
in Clave rhythms.
El hijo
De Shango
Son of Loiza
Spirit of Boriquen
Afro-Taino
Citizen of the Commonwealth
Of Cubop
Tu memoria
Shall live
in the words
and deeds
of Conga Children.

Moreno
Let your nom de guerre
live beyond the darkness
of your Shadow
Let those who seek the light
find sleep
in between the comfort
of Symphony notes
and Berimbau assassinations.

Moreno
We know
and love you
because you represent
amor y paz
in an age of darkness
when things fall apart
and the world craves
the truth of our existence.

There is no tomorrow
Without the today
Because the Today
Is all some of us really have
So let us remember you,
Moreno
