looked up the meaning of akiumbu and found it referred to a certain body pose (hands on hips; elbows bent out etc). As a writer I thrive on words and am always grateful for any opportunity to increase my word-power/vocabulary. Thank-you for that Jim. Torn akiumbu is a very good phrase indeed.

Three is the majic number.



Let not birds ride adieu


In regal splendor reign


Be not the visionary


Upon my visage claim



Fair ‘twert not the pain


That languished so


A bridge upon two waters


Past is long ago



Once was the coxswain


Billy upon his blast


Twice was the garbage scow sinking fast


Three was the number of the past


Long linked to saving grace


Upon the terror passed



Beyond that I know not


The pow’r of ill repute entered into


By all so rashly corrupted


And torn akiumbu


Joined to the last drop


From savings gone under 1 comment
