Ari Sitas, Theoretical Parables as re-worked by Gladman Ngubo* (2007): Page 3 of 12

Body: 

(3)Indoda eyayihlanya yayiyingozi ngempela.

Yaboshwa ngezintambo, yahlikihlwa ulimi ngemithi ebabayo. Awuizwe nje. Yahamba icela imali ezindleleni, noma idayise ngezimpahla zayo….. awucabange nje. UMOYA! Abanye abantu yabagqema izingozi, ithi beqe umngcele baphefumula umoya endaweni yayo ngaphandle kwemvume yayo. ``Hheyi nina! ‘’ imemeza, ``yekani ukuphefumula manje!’’ Abantu besamangele bengazi ukuthi bazophendula bathini, badonsa umoya kakhulu, hhiya, yagadla indoda, lakhala ikhanda, yasha induku emahlombe nasezingeni.

 

Kodwa-ke manje konke sekuqondile, sekunokuthula. Sesilala ngokuthokomala, sizihambele kahle ngaphandle kokuhlukumezeka. Sibuzana ukuthi kazi lo mhlaba uyogcina unjani. Awucabange nje ukuthi kwakungaba njani uma lo mhlaba esiphila kuwona wawungadayiswa, sidayiselwe nemvula, amanzi, iziphethu, amatshe nezihlahla esiphemba ngazo umlilo?

 

Awucabange nje imvula seyithengwa ngemihlambi emithathu yezinkomo?
