Non-governmental Mosquitoes

Verbal etalage of secret views variant

Did tarnish your image at the quarreling theatre

When you threw decency and caution to the wind

Just   in time to prove Shakespeare right:

“The world is a stage”.


Never in my life have I witnessed such volcanic eruption of fiery insults

True and untrue

Real and unnatural…

We may invite you again,

Just to testify against each other in the quarrelling theatre

Where Mbaluto once held onto the orphan snake-clasp of his belt

But Maluto was   plaintiff


Shame on you!

You bloody dandy darlings

You who drink honey from human skull

Real non-governmental mosquitoes

Shame on every non-governmental mosquito!

When you first meet him, he’s banal; then you get to know him a bit, then you like him. Get to know him some more and you don’t like him much anymore. Write him off…. A mistake. He likes to be undermined at first contact. WARNING! You’re in the territory of a man with uncommon experiences so don’t be unexpectant of the expected unexpected. What do I mean?
