Time to Start a Fire

I was once in Africa
And it was time
to start a fire

So I found the biggest
Densest 
Mopane I could find
And I carried it
to the place
where we burned the wood

And they said to me
Jonathan who is with you
There is no way
One man
Can carry
A Mopane that big alone

And I said
I am alone
But tonight
we will have fire
