Explanation


Flies as a Kigo

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I am sure that we can get a lot of good, satirical and humorous haiku on flies!
May be there being a lot of garbage in Nairobi could make it more appropriate kigo
especially at this time when the government is thinking of getting rid of the largest garbage dump in Kenya: The Dandora Garbage dump!
It is estimated that it would cost the government about 13 billion shillings to manage the Nairobi wastes alone!....

HAIKU


ouch!
a mosquito bit me
its painful

fracas
as mosquitoes riot
against raid


- "Raid" is an insecticide in Kenya and the haiku is about "Raid" advertisement that we see on T.V

a swarm of houseflies
on cobs and leftovers--
green maize

flies everywhere -
as i try to kill one
i slap my face


Adelaide Luvandale

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

in the kitchen
a drawer filled with oranges --
safe from the flies


They are tiny fruit flies, and would just love to find a crack in the orange skins!
