Palm Tree

Palm Tree

Oh palm tree, the neglected

But invaluable plant

Your leaves provide us

With broom with which

Our houses are kept clean.

Your seeds provide us

Palm kernel oil that

Produces soap for

Keeping us, our clothes and

Other personal effects clean.

It also provides us the cream

For oiling our skin and hair.

Even the by-product

Palm kernel cakes

Provide food for livestock.

The palm oil that is extracted

From the seeds is important

For preparing food and other

Industrial products.

The sap provides us

Delicious palm wine that gives

Us a lot of yeast that is beneficial

To our eyes.

Palm tree you’re so important

Like oxygen to man.
