An African Duel

            the event occurs at the call of nightfall
         like the Pied piper it attracts gallant souls
          drum beats,hooting,shouting,pep talks
          all the fancy one would meet in a circus
           all paths trail to the house on the hill
      contestants converge at his Majesty's abode

   the trophy is displayed to the beholding eyes
 an art of beauty and elegance like the Mona Lisa
 the magnificent princess the colossus of the event
  and this means war for any by the name..."MAN"
she hath a charm that would make one slay a dragon
if that were the only avenue towards winning her heart

            The kings arrival stirs every spirit
     echoes of gusto engulf the atmosphere at hand
       with immense pride he wields his golden spear
a symbol of authority and power for he that claims the throne
    and that marks the prologue of a remarkable event
and in place of fireworks ; the stars bring to life an array of beauty

       Agana the Kraal champion stands his ground 
      like the legendary Minotaur he's quite a scene 
blood shot eyes,wrinkled face,he posses for a challenge
    and the answer to his quest............."grave silence"
                not a single"MAN" is brave as
          to lose his head in the hands of Goliath
          at least not antil one felt David enough
