The Duo's Different Destination

By Ndaba Sibanda

The Duo's Different Destination

a tedious man in the throes
of a stomachache and echoes

flinching, fumbling over
a pain too rude to be over

feeling fooled by a diet of stinks,
delicacies and diverse drinks

does he believe that his bowls
belie his beliefs and lifestyle?

being ferried in a fabulous Ferrari
by a fuddled fan-turned friend

whose drunken driving dramas
are laid in vivid detail for all to devour

in a text set for film adaptation,
yet unwritten, unedited and unknown

the drunken duo ends up in a probing police station, rather than in hospital
