The Igbo say

When the moon is shining

The cripple

Becomes hungry for a walk;

What the Igbo did not know

Or did not say is that

The Cripple

With a capital C

Is always hungry for a walk;

Especially when

There’s no moon in the skies

And the world is dark

And he cannot

Just get up and go

Walk right into the inviting lights

Of his so many dreams!
