Rolling On Meanders - Poem by Paul Mwenelupembe

Rolling Chikhwawa a basket of water
Down the course to the plain
Stood still and threw a steam boat in water
Rolling on meanders slovenly by gears drain
Breaks, a bucket of them

Rolling and boring on tires
To and fro in white and black
In records absorbing and dissolving
Rolling and rolling, zigzag down fight
Zigzag up and groaning

Thus it spoiled
And grabbed the plain
And summit again in lights


Poet's Notes about The Poem

I was on duty then, going to chikwawa district in the southern part of Malawi, with un covered land cruiser. I was at the back of the vehicle, rain drizzling on me then with all kind of survey equipment around to and fro. The road is too bendy men! !
