Daily Omens Of Body Parts - Poem by David Aoloch Bion

In Jonglei village
if man goes on journey
and stumbles his left leg
he cancels that journey
stumbling left left a sign
of danger in that direction
or somrthing he looks
for is not there

if he stumbles right leg
he rejoices
right leg stumbling, a sign
of good luck
or something he looks for
is there

In Jonglei village
if your right eye itch
you will see something good
if your left eye itch
you will see something bad

if your right hand itch
you will hold gold
if your left hand itch
you will hold mud
