Is Peter O'Neill a Machiavelli moving to some cabal-style rule?
Remembering the life of a great Simbu man, my bubu Pius

Among a rare blended family

Blended familyJIMMY AWAGL

An entry in the 2016 Crocodile Prize

This poem is dedicated to all couples who remarried,
with their kids having a stepmother and step father

The glow of the setting sun sparkles
Glimmering rays on the valley of Kewamugl
At the western end the setting sun glows
As I descended from Mount Mondia
I caught the full glimpse of the spectrum

The clouds on Mount Oho split
A thick shower of golden hail falls
And clenched still on mom’s chest
You build your kingdom
Along this splendid plateau 

Your glistering appearance
Comes from above where no eye can reach
For you are carved with the finest blade
From good earth to heaven
A place demanding of your handsomeness

The rays of the sun are part of you
The flash of lightning your personality
The rainbow spectrum shows your quality
The sprinkle of rain is your shower of blessing
The attributes of nature are on your side

The sight of my eyes
Elevates you to higher dimension
The words of my mouth full of love
As a sign of the infinite blessing
That will reign over your life

The distance may separate
But my heart will not depart
Since you are my illumination
Whom I will treasurer most
Your blessing is the word from your uncle

It could be Waine, Jeffery, Gabriel
Bobby, Raphael, sons of optimistic couple
But my blessing is of no discrimination
For it is a symbol of unity
Among a rare blended family
