Middday Friend - Poem by Caleb Tukahiirwa

I came out of the house
Around my big feet he was
Black in no shape I can define
I felt so scared that he could swallow me,
But no he just lay there beautifully
On the ground around my feet;
I tried to touch him but couldn’t,
Tried kicking but it was impossible,
Talking to him but he couldn’t answer,
He was making a fool of me maybe

Stuck with me he was now, huh
Then a thought smashed my mind
Maybe i have gotten a friend,
One I could go with anywhere,
Always around my feet he could be
Watching for any snakes around
I think i like him anyway
But wait! I don’t even know where he comes from
He looks small maybe he is a young one
Who is scared of being alone on this scarely ground
Dad and mom must be looking for him
I tried to take him inside for a rest
And there he disappeared to, I don’t know where.
