Literature in English, JAMB 1978:

Please read questions 33 - 42 here

 

43.

From the West Clouds come hurrying with the wind

Turning sharply here and there

Like a plague of locust whirling

Tossing up things on its tail

Like a madman chasing nothing

 

Pregnant clouds

Ride stately on its back

Gathering to perch on hills

Like dark sinister wings

The wind whistles by

And trees bend to let us pass.

 

In the village

Screams of delighted children

Toss and turn

In the dim of whirling wind

Women – Babies clinging to their backs

Dart about in and out

Madly the wind whistles by

Whilst trees bend to let us pass

From “An African thunderstorm” by David Rubadiri

  3. everyone who married Ihuoma or expressed a wish to do so came to harm
  4. Ihuoma prefers to be a mistress rather than a wife
  5. being the spirit-wife of jealous Sea-King, any marriage subsequently contracted cannot be valid; she is condemned to the status of a concubine

 

46.

In those days

When civilization kicked us in the face

When holy water slapped our cringing brows

The vultures built in the shadow of their talons

The bloodstained monument of tutelage.

 

In those days

There was painful laughter on the metallic hell of the roads

And the monotonous rhythm of the paternoster

Drowned the howling of the plantations

Of the bitter memories of extorted kisses

Of promises broken at the point of a gun

Of foreigners who did not seem human

You who knew all the books but knew no love

Nor our hands which fertilize the womb of the earth

Hands instinct of the root with revolt

In spite of your songs of pride in the charnel houses

In spite of the desolate villages of Africa torn apart

Hope lived in us like a citadel

And from Swaziland’s mines to the sweltering sweat of Europe’s factories

Spring will be reborn under our bright steps.

The vultures”, by David Diop
