Treasure Island

David Aoloch Bion

(1976 / Republic of South Sudan)

Absence is like death


One day squirrel was absent at home
An elephant came and crossed his farm
And destroyed some of crops
When squirrel came, saw crops destroyed
And big footprint on farm

‘’Who destroyed the crops? ’ asked squirrel
‘’An elephant’’ said the wife
‘’What worst in World like absence? ,
Absence is like death, If I were there ….,
If I were …., if I were……! ’’ the squirrel said moving
Up and down in great fury
‘’What will you do? ’ the wife asked

Without direct answer the squirrel shown
His testicle to his wife and said ‘’All these two things
Are the same among the bulls whether a bull of
Ant or bull of elephant. I fear only the bull with
Three testicles’’

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
