(For Gideon Kweti)
By Tikum Mbah Azonga
Don`t pile on the strawberries
They`re bitter enough already
Instead, do egg on the laundresses
They`re ready and raring to go.
But for God`s sake, don`t come in lorries
Lest everyone thinks we`re heady
Instead, come resplendent in your Sunday best dresses
For once, forget about the hoe.
