I Salute You - Poem by Tapera Makadho
It's you who taught me
To curve a line out of iron
And made me blacksmith,
Now I mould words out of tongues -
Words which can wage wars
And call them wits.
Have you forgotten?
The grooves of a gun
Are engraved through hard firing!
You took me from my little
Hamlet and gave me a helmet,
Now I know how to smelt
A matter of ornament.
It's you who tamed the lion
If they say iron sharpens iron
But brooding me to a pet of zion
I Salute You.
