A Man And A Hoe Poem by Ayatullah Nurjati

A Man And A Hoe

Rating: 4.6

There is a man sleeping in the Cavity wall
His height barely fits when he lies down
In a slightly towering building something has fallen in party wall
Because of sleepiness that he doesn't care tool his hoedown

He uses his rest time to rest in the fall
Like a plant that has rested for a long time and produces beautiful flowers with a fragrant aroma, where people will feel comfortable its shade down
Causality which is usually done as an effort to provide for his wife and eight children—natural call
Lazy time stops ticking upside and down

There is nothing interesting in him that always interacts with the wall
What is clear is the vulnerable hoe that helps to climb the stairs and go down
The break was over and causality resumed—he was always sad as to why his foreman kept telling him to execute the building of wall.
It's sad to be treated by the bosses and foremen like a clown

He muttered to himself, luckily he wasn't ordered to build a big wall like Borobudur or the Chinese wall
Frozen feelings and his soul will become imbrown
Ready to explode at some point similar to a bombshell
His Hoe is always sulky and doesn't want to be on the stairs like Superman who always finds it difficult to lift Thor's paw because it's heavy carried by the wind by megasporophyll

A very thought-provoking poem, I must reread this again. A excellent metaphored prose poem. At the least I have enjoyed very very much reading this excellent poem

Some Notes from my side: What is a HOEDOWN? And what is IMBROWN? The word HEAVY here must be HEAVILY, usual form in the English language. The meaning of these all you ought to note that in the Poet's Notes About The Poem section. Thank you for taking notice of my Notes.

Hoedown means that a social gathering at which lively folk dancing takes place.or Hoe it self (Cangkul) . Imbrown means 1. to make brown.2. poetic. to make dark or darker. Heavy carried (that sentences could not be happen) it just only figure of speech (out of grammatical rules and Syntaxs)
