“Give your poems names. They are your children.”
Tumelo Khoza, on her facebook page, 22 January 2014.

One of these children, a poem titled “This Young Man” plays with the nursery rhyme “This Old Man”. A poem about reversing the roles and a woman approaching a man she fancies…

“This young man
He played one
He played knick-knack on my tongue
With a knick-knack paddywhack

And what’s hidden in it
Just 59 seconds of your time
Before I ask for your digits…”
