Mkuki kwa nguruwe, kwa binaadamu mchungu

A spear only fits a warthog, it’s bitter to a human being

In other words, those people who like to cause harm and discomfort to others, often times are very quick at crying foul when something bad is done to them.

Always, though, fear
makes him careful:
like me, some scene
where the warthog masks up -
lips, tushes, plastered with blood -
settling small eyes to explain
that he’s kind, that he’s nice . . .
