IT HAD BEGUN
10th January, 2016

IT HAD JUST BEGUN…

The cold dry Harmattan wind blowing from the north

Had gotten to us here down south, everyone knew instantly

What was coming soon, the women and Children

Knew soon enough they would only watch from behind locked doors and windows

The raffia was set, the masks carved, the pre-rituals completed

It was the joyful Christmas season, yet some will be sorrowful by tonight

The rolling drums could be heard through the village, the waters receded the river banks

Doors began to shut, lanterns blown off, windows closed

It had begun…
