Fulani Herdsman - Poem by Babatunde Aremu

Handsome slender tiny frame
Strong-willed like a steel
Simple and gentle in outlook
Resolute inward as a soldier
Always traversing all settlements
Living in tents in the jungle
Searching for greener pastures
Daily to please the herds
With a stick, bow and arrow at hand
He is willing to fight
Just to safe the sheep
Sometimes he wins the war
Sometimes his life is terminated
Yet, he is undaunted and not bothered
He is just satisfied doing
What he is good at.
