Comments about Ssemutooke Joseph
The sight yesterday of classmate Allan
Being taken swimming by his old man
Had me behind the classroom weeping,
As I saw myself and my old man
That I never saw also go swimming;
Back home I asked mother if she thought
My old man would have taken me swimming
Were he to be still living,
And she said, Yes, she thought,
Small tears down her eyes streaming.
