Masai Warrior

Walking in the bush
on the red earth
wrapped in a red blanket
the Masai Warrior is at peace
with nature;
high forehead,

with bulging eyes -
full of holy books and good advice.

will soon be rolled out
like the extensile tongue of the chameleon
to thunder
with jeeps and trucks
bringing -
cattle ranchers
ostrich farmers
genetic-crop growers
a shanty town
with fast food
a bar
and a gas station.
