He knows it
Somalidu waxay ku maahmaahda af xumo nabad bay ka kaxeesa colaadna wax kama tarto.
I don't, care to enlighten me?
This is the funniest article abtigiis has ever penned down. LMAO!!! :D
waad ii dambaajisay, istaqfurulaah
In defense of Khatumo men regarding their romantic styles or lack thereof, here is a poem by non other than Ali Adan (Ali Dhuh), the poet of poets in his era. As the era of Darwishes come to an end, and British colony tightened its control in British Somaliland, Ali's sub clan (Reer A* Geri) saw their fortunes diminish as their stature and standing within the Hawd community declined . As time passed by, Ali's wife begun to feel the receding power and diminishing value of the man she is married to, and started questioning him about this and that.
Ali Dhuh, after putting up with his wife's whining and grumble for some time, decided to paint a historical picture for her about his sub clans. What followed was one of the most interesting poems Ali ever composed. In it is the description of the villages and settlements he once ruled and lived, the raids his subclan used to organize, the camels they wrestlled from the weaker (Oodweyne's clan), neighboring clans etc. But also in the poem is a beautiful illustration of how Ali and the youth of his clan used to date girls , the hitting-on and chasing the skirts so to speak and nomadic, romantic tales of Hawd.
Snippets of Ali's qaafleey ;
Qoda Dhagaxley qooriga Haye iyo, tuban Qalaalkeeda
Qotankii Yamayskiyo kobtaan, qadow ku beeraynay
Nimankii qusuusiga ahaa, Qoran madaajaane
Qaandhaawadii kuma lisaan, qamaca jiilaale
Qorog buuxa agaan qafilan, qabaxsan maayaane
Qiyaas caanaheeda oo dhanaan, kuma quraacdaane
Qol dugsoon intay jiifsadaan, qabay ma fuulaane
Qadhyad gabadh ah qaalida waheen, lama qadeeyaan e
Intay qalab magaalo u xidhaan, kula ma qooqaane
Qarashyaalihii lama dhacaan, qirada fiiqnaaye
Qosolkii iyo haasaawihii, ku qarxinmaayaane
In the concluding verses Ali directly addresses his wife and tells her like it is: we were once the kings and princes of Hawd valley , he says, but today our status speaks for our situation. Read the quran and supplicate to your Lord for all you have is ME and Abdi :D
Naag yahay aduun iga qariban, quusna waan ahaye
Qab baa madaxa kaa buuxa oo, waad qadhaadhahaye
Waxaan la qar wayaa laylka dhexe, qoomamo iyo ciile
Ragii aniga ila qayr ahaa, qoladii Reer Jaamac
Qormadaad ogeyd baan lashiray, amase qoorwaaye
Qabiilkii ku guursaday lamadhi, Qoonkii Reer Gorode
Maantana qudhayda iyo Cabdoo, Qaawan baa hadhaye
Qarigii ********ka yaal, qaraxii Doofaare
****** qareen kama dhigteen, qaatay halihiiye
Hadba qolo waxaan ula degaa, waa qariibnimo e
Qalbi hadii aad leedahay asaad, qaadan taladayda
Qaydada Ilaahay kutimid, Qaadir taladiisa
Qawlkii Rasuulkiyo sharciga, hays qilaafina e
Qaatumadu yay kaa xumaan, qirada diineede
Qaybtaadii soo laasataye, qaafku dhigo looxa :D
I do agree with the results of this reasearch and i may go further and say the Men from the triangle are not far behind the khatumites in that regard, all according to my x girlfriends.
Seriously though,We Somalis are the most romantic, no people are so full of exaggeration or fanciful inventions as we Somalis, but treating our girls with ardor or chivalrousness is wholly different ball game, and for a good reason.
Who on earth can romace someone who will call her family if you ask for any other position than the misionary in bed?
:D this, while poetry at its best in no way contradicts the findings of the research.; for the research did not claim Khaatumo men are impotent! It said they are unromantic ; which seems to be confirmed by Cali's "qaybtaadi soo laasataye, qaaf ku dhigo looxa".
:D Qaybtaadi soo laasataye, qaaf ku dhigo looxa
But in fairness, Ali's verses must be examined in the context of a 60 year old woman asking for more
Or slap unsuspecting child and force him to go to bed ahead of schedule just to alert the man things will not pass in silence that night.
This thread is hilarious.
Dear friend, it is NOT myself to disrespect or look down on anybody here or there in somalia, but this information about khatumites is a fact. Why would I boost my ego on this particular narrative, I mean what buzz would this offer me? Mr Richard Burton has even illustrated this issue (dhaqan somali ) in book titled... " first footsteps in East African". This book is about different clans in Ethiopia, somalia, jibouti, Kenya, and other East African countries. Unless you thinking that Richard is taking sides;)
He called Somalis s.tupid for believing malaria is carried by mosquitos in that book, I don't believe that racist voyeur is the best source
Afxumo halkee lagu qoray, if I was scornfully abusive to you guys I would have certainly faced the bounced out list, unlike dr osman who is called the triangle girls h**s and unfortunately the admin is ignoring it.
I guess that is less than one sentence regarding to Mosquitos affairs.......mr burton talked about ***, ****** etc and then described them into details and subsections. Even specific tradition each clans posses hope you finished the whole saffy;)
