Sometimes – well, most times
we tend to be overly paranoid and concerned with what others think of us
to such an extent, we end up losing our sanity.
We live in a world swarmed with an unusually large number of paranoid hypochondriacs.
Its like we want to look good more than we want to be good.
What more is there to do other than feel pity for ourselves?
But worse still are those instances when we
behave like the baboon from one particular Swahili proverb.
This baboon was always amused by
and critical of
the in-your-face and dont-you-dare-ignore-me buttocks
of other baboons;
obliviously blind to its own much more comical
Do you know of the proverb I’m talking about?
How does it go again?…
Is it “Nyani hana mkundu?”
No, thats not it…
Or is it “Nyani haoni mikundu?”…
Oops… I got it wrong again…
Now I remember…
“Nyani haoni kundule!” *
