He is but a cute baby boy.
A great many people know so little about his name,
for it carries a meaning so profound.
It’s because he’s alive and well that
mother and father have found many more reasons to live for.
The fruit of his father’s loins,
the offspring of his mother’s labour.
He is a joy to his mother and a gem to his father.
This is the lad who would mend the land,
for the Gods of Africa have anointed him
to live a long and happy life.
Forever looming large.
