Gusii Girl - Poem by Bieze Josephat

Her eyes
Choke me like boiled sweet potatoes
For even flies
Fear her to touch
Those big but not too big
Watery-puppy eyes
Strike me like lightning.

Her white strong teeth
Burns a grassy hat
For it always send sparks
Whenever she smiles
The gap in her fore-teeth
Is the narrow-gate to heaven.

Her short but not too short
Bow-shaped legs and graceful feet
Make old men curse the day they wedded
For her presence make them restless.

Oh! Bornfied of Gusii
How pretty you are
That wilted banana leaves
Spring to life at your touch
I halt, I halt
For space i lack to describe
The bornfied of Gusii.
