THIS IS A YEAR OF THE PIG CONTEST ENTRY
The Jewel-Encrusted Diadem
It’ll shine so bright, it can transport us into the depths of the po.
Fo da boss, he says, “jes’ write”, e kakau wale ho’i.
‘Eha Ke Po’o
Ouuuch! ‘Eha ke po’o! My head hurts. Aue!
I feel trampling, all over my rugged kino,
I hear yelling, shouting, cussing.
Sounds of chanting send tremors through my ‘ili.
A worn-out cycle of confusion and controversy .
One hui wants this, another hui wants that.
Voices, claiming “pono “,
continue to branch off,
like rapidly dying ‘ohi’a.
Some say they want to put another huge stone in my jewel-encrusted diadem.
Yeah, another one.
But they say, this one will shine even brighter
than the rest.
It’ll shine so bright,
it can transport us into
the depths of the po.
How about revealing solutions?
One brave koa named Bruddah George once said this about my sister,
“she’s not just a barren rock”.
“Me too “.
