» » » The Fate of Suco and Friends 7




Friends of Anas ne’er forgot
Anas jingled bell upon the table
And with tails wagging, Suco jumped in
And devoured bones with grunts of gratefulness
And seeing her master in angels’s apparel
After gathered bones were crushed
Suco jumped and danced around Anas.
“O bitch, stop it,
That my garment be fit for royal gathering.”
“O master, this isn’t a first day we have played like this,
Thou shall stroke my head and fondle your pet.”

The boat that climbed hills to that palace
Ne’er wait to reason and though smeared,
Anas snooze to the river.
Iyemoja’s asleep
Or in chamber of Olokun
Or she’s angry
For sacrifice in calabash’s not drowned.
Swimmers thus feared peddles
But Anas must chant before princes beyond rivers
Where a chief proclaimed,
“O welcome thou coveting our gloryland
Show thyself and thy saintly garment”

Guards pushed Anas, dog barked him
And in his pool of tears
And river raging fears, boat abandoned,
Anas waddled across banks for days
