Simbu Now and Forever

Chimbu Warrior (Hal Holman OL OAM)JIMMY DREKORE

An entry in The Crocodile Prize
Kina Securities Award for Poetry

They call me Simbu Stone
Because of my heart
The treasure deep within is preserved
My love is precious
You will know when you walk into it

They call me Simbu Warrior
Because of my spirit
The passion roots from the marrow
I love my game and play it hard
You will know when you run at me

They call me Kona
Because of my root
My root is my soul
If angels live upstairs
Land in Kundiawa to know
Because there’s no landing
So challenging

They call me Angra
Because of my heart
Because of my spirit
Because of my soul
It’s because I’m Simbu

It’s only Simbus
You’ll remember in heaven

Eme kumo kimbo panga.

Ene kumo kimbo kaima panga.

(I'm trying to learn a bit of Kuman)
