Temachu Sonnet Poem by emebet mesfin

Temachu Sonnet



still picture showing heart wrenching scene, a soldier returning home head bent spirit broke, loyal animal carrying his master who didn't win, reminded me of Ato Temachu a character tragic, tattered cloth barefooted overgrown hair a mess, looking on the merriment in trance at his gate, watched the enemy in disbelief lording it in the house,wife possessed by foreign arms couldn't accept his lot, he was given wine mistaken for a beggar, distress intensified daughter broke glass he used, she didn't recognise him was following an order, he hang himself on a tree buckling under the load, battlefield makes or breaks men tainting interaction, robs off their dignity leaves them withdrawn
