The lions of Madang are roaring - join our pride
Guileless Wahgi River

Simbu Man


An entry in the 2015 Rivers Award
for Writing on Peace & Harmony

I am simple
I am down to earth

I am honest
I smell your sweat

And wipe your tears
I don’t have the ability

To use an eloquent word to impress
Born from the rugged mountains

Moulded with the Simbu philosophy
The goodness and hospitality

Are the traditional virtues
That I hold to use

You have to be a true Simbu
To know a Simbu man
