e = mc2

On the way to work this morning, sitting in the Nakawa market area traffic jam, in this really crappy taxi, a random thought just wandered into my head, unfolded and reclined on a deck chair, put on some sunscreen and a pair of Raybans then right before unfolding a Langston Hughes book, it said, “I feel nothing for this country.” Then it read a few paragraphs and went to sleep in the mid morning sun.

That funky random thought. I'm sure I've met his erstwhile sashaying twin sister: she said, 'Kampala = potholes, especially around Nakawa Market'.But, from the way you describe this thought, lol, I wanna meet him too.

Wait. Sunscreen? What would Langston Hughes say about an African using sunscreen?

Thump, thump, thump, went his foot on the floor.

He played a few chords then he sang some more--

"I got the Weary Blues

And I can't be satisfied.

Got the Weary Blues

And can't be satisfied--

I ain't happy no mo'

And I wish that I had died."

And far into the night he crooned that tune.

The stars went out and so did the moon.

This is a brilliant, and I imagine unappreciated, piece.

Just passing through...

I'm asking people all over the world to give me their opinion. Everyone knows God but no One agrees about It. Maybe the inhabitants of the world can agree about what God isn't?


I'd love to receive your 10 words and foreign post mark.
