THE DARK SUN















Eating a stolen meal
while drumming a stolen Konga,
fantasizing on another man’s wife;
dreaming of an airless world-
free of all body eating ailments.

Elephants don’t trust ants,
neither do lizards trust snakes.
It’s not obvious that owls and worms
do not like each other.
Don’t dismiss their affair if you not the mediator.

Still waters run fast.
Rough waters can run deep too.
After the storm can come a hurricane.
It’s not always old age with wisdom,
give the tortoise a chance in the race.
