Kokeb Poem by emebet mesfin

Kokeb



hark! don't hesitate to elect prospective graduate
he hits two decade plus two years, congratulations
eleven devoted followers at his service, no complaint
he's their leader by default grand in their eyes
Namo Nati believe when they finish high school
hero created position day he left to pursue education
don't doubt it's Gonder University they eventually enroll
fly all the way there too just like their favorite cousin
Abelo obsessed on teenagers few years back
everything they did intrigued filled up his world
Jojo fitted image no question kid record track
watched AIS students at field, live action unfold
each family member special regard bestow, victorious dear
elevate status, upgrade entitled role strive for more

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
Star translates in to 'KOKEB' in my native language Amharic. The first grand son in the family is treated with special regard. Dear nephew, I hope you will become an impactful person in the world. In my stay, in Abu Dhabi, nephew Abelo who loved everything about teenagers at the time used to sneak into the field where high schoolers play and watch them. All he talked about was teenagers in such magnified way!
