Thing Of Your Mine Kill You Too - Poem by David Aoloch Bion

Manut came and found head of man dried in forest,
he beat dried head with club and said
‘’damn it, thing of your head kill you’’
The dried head answered
‘’even you, thing of your head will kill you too’’
Manut surprised by what dead head said
He left and came home, he told people
About ‘’ dried head that speak in forest’’
His friends rebuked him of telling lie
He argued with them that he’s right
He told his friends to go to forest
His friends asked ‘’if we don’t find head speaking,
what shall we do to you’’
Manut replied ‘’ kill me’’
His friends agreed and went to forest.
They reached the head
‘’ a giant kill by thing of it head speaks’’
The dried head never answered
Manut hit head again and said
‘’ man kill by thing of it head speaks’’
The head never spoke and kept quiet
Manut friends took spears speared him
Manut fell and died
Then dried head started to speak
‘’ damn it, thing of your head kill you too’’
