Here’s something very unusual, a Somali Gabay that makes fun of the form. Specifically, this is a mock-heroic version of the poem The News to Rome, with its celebration of holy war and camel raiding. In this version, the “true men” launch an expedition to a brothel where they eat the addictive stimulant “qaat”.
By the Herer ravine,
if at noon, you gulp down an unpalatable lunch
Sleep you should not enjoy
— you must wage a holy struggle for the soul…
