By Tikum Mbah Azonga
If you have arrived
Then by all means, speak!
Speak now and let the people hear you
Let them hear you loud and clear
And know you are a man, not a wimp.
Show us what’s in your tool box
Bits and pieces of unwanted textile
Old and raped and bleeding bottle covers
Paper tigers, paper ships and paper aeroplanes
Missing shirt buttons and unattached trouser zips.
