muAfrica POEMS: Duties

If you’re alive, accept the ups and downs of life
As an infant accepts its new name
Live knowing life is two faced a coin.
If you’re married, relate as tongue and teeth
Always forgiving
And to your companion in all a weather stick
As a Zebra and her stripes
Two beings in one soul.
If you’re a teacher, your low pay accept
As a dog a jawbone from his master accepts
Always scorned as a bus driver
But passengers in care their endpoints reaching
Teach the world to a star’s worthy.
If you’re a preacher,
The good news far and wide
As the hurricane brutally blowing
Sin’s roots uprooting
And where possible, your mouth open.
