Tikum Mbah Azonga, Cameroon

After watching Clair Denis' wonderful movie Chocolat
with Kara tonight, I did a google search and came up
with what I think is a pretty interesting poem by
Tikum Mbah Azonga of Cameroon. I post some of the contextual
verbiage as well because it has an odd terminology.

22. Scape goat

People can say whatever they like
It doesn’t bother me one bit
It isn’t because you say the sun is a traitor
That it then becomes one.

I may have crossed the bridge on bike
But is that why I am treated like a hermit?
Instead of blackmailing me, why not see my mentor?
How can any man worth his salt sink so low?
