(For Sub Divsional Delegate Chongwain)

By Tikum Mbah Azonga

How do you put it
All together or under one roof?
And what about the classroom decoration?
What colours and what refrains do you pile?
Are we comparing notes?
Or are we trading by batter?

When I saw the candle lit
I knew that was proof enough
Then the big sky opened up in confirmation
A loud voice spoke but did not revile
Son, you have enough votes
You are Fundong Sub Delegate and here's your platter.

To tell you the truth i expected to read something special about fundong why because it is where i was born.But when i saw it was directed to the delegate the interest i had reduced but all the same it is a good poem but will make a lot of impact only to the person it is intended for.

Yes, the poem is about the delegate. He was appointed Basic Education Delegate for Fundong Sub Division earlier this year.

He gave me the opening line of the poem many months ago when he was not yet delegate.I wrote the poem after his appointment.

Did you write the poem in order to receive something in return? or the poem was written because of the fact that you were inspired by the opening line he gave you?

It was the opening line, only the opening line and just the opening line. Nothing more,nothing less.
