Stay to govern

      “And now you leave us without a king! We were born in bondage, and must die as slaves. Why do you not stay to govern?”
     I told him we didn’t want to, and ’twas up to him and his like to govern themselves.
      “You mean we must cut each other’s throats,” grumbles he. “This is Africa.”
