Mkaaah Jeechonee, the Boy Hunter
When they came near the town he began to sing,
“Mother, mother, I have come
From the evil spirits, home.
Mother, listen while I sing;
While I tell you what I bring.
Oh, mother, I have killed
The noondah, eater of the people.”
And when his mother looked out, she cried, “My son, this is the noondah, eater of the people.”
Then all the people came out to welcome him, and his father was overcome with joy, and loaded him with honors, and procured him a rich and beautiful wife; and when he died Mkaaah Jeechonee became sultan, and lived long and happily, beloved by all the people.
