From the Kirondes,
To the Ntoniyos,
Twins are a marvel!
The annual New Vision Twin Festival,
Is a great place to meet twins,
Plus their parents.
Fathers are called salongo,
While mothers are nalongo in the predominant Bantu language.
The Most Fertile Woman on Earth,
Has quite a number of kids born together,
Above 44 in total.
My mother has twin sisters.
Her brother has twin daughters.
I have seen twins outside our Anyafio neighbourhood in Arua,
Talked to their mother through the fence,
While I caught whiteants.
A twin I had never met before,
Invited me to Church in 2008.
When I got there,
I thought she sat infront of me,
In the middle of the left column.
But when I kept calling out the firstname I knew,
She did not respond.
What I did not know,
Was that it was her twin sister.
They were so much alike.
When I sent a text,
I discovered that the twin I wanted,
Sat at the front in the right column.
