‘Find out their exact strength
And communicate
Back to me before
The wounded reach the village
And thanks greatly for
Keeping open your eyes
And ears on the goings-on
Around there – please, make
Double sure humans don’t pillage
Nothing from our museum
And find out if in
The Amo Udia Amo Unam village
The fleeing humans did return
And carefully watch the skies
As we can’t exactly predict
The next human action,
Whether the base they would
Want again to bomb or burn.’

DON’T MISS: These Facts about the man with the Longest Poem in Africa

‘Yes sir,’ the head of
The special flight crew
Replies before his phone
Goes dead. I press the ‘end’ key
And return mine to its place.
‘Love!’ my wife says.
‘The way some people go
About it makes it look
Like an absolute mess.
The males are the most guilty –
Why is it for one female,
They would kill and maim?’
‘I don’t see it the way
You see it,’ I say. ‘In love,
Everyone is jealous –
Your excuse is lame.’

My wife nibbles my neck,
Then says: ‘But who’s the most
Jealous? Just be honest.’
‘I don’t know but I’d seen
Males fight and females too to keep
Their partners but in earnest,
I would compare love to music:
Different folks would dance
To different beats – some swing
To reggae, some jive to rock;
Some just sit and tap
To country, some wiggle
To African beat, some jig
To techno – it’s different
Border, different buck.’

‘And what’s your flavour?’
My wife asks, laughing.
‘You can swear,’ I reply,
‘I’m on the radical side.
I love dancing to reggae –
I love the down-to-earth lyrics,
The stomp and the jump;
I love the rhythmic vibe.’
My wife nibbles my neck
A second time. ‘Okay,’ she says,
‘Let’s go back and see what
Tortoise’s love is more like.’
‘Tell the head of Information Unit
To alert the troops
To watch out and report on
The humans coming from
The jungle on every motorbike.’
