Comments about Alexander Raju
The Voice Of Ethiopia
It's not just for fishing
That you go for fishing!
Your dire need to survive
Urges your heart to live,
You go to the river banks,
Face this world's risky pranks!
You take your hook and line,
With some coarse bread as bait,
Walk through the dense jungle
And reach the Blue Nile's shore!
The river seems crazy,
Her water flows up and down;
The float on your line moves
To the tune of currents!
You watch the water flow,
The bubbles come and burst,
And feel the ripples fight
To take earth under your feet!
You sit ...
I Hate Termites
I HATE TERMITES
I hate all termites by heart,
Though they manage to balance
The earth's true ecology
By eating all that is dead!
There are termites that eat you
While you're alive, like burglars,
