This is my Botswanan nativity,
Sculpted with great creativity,
By a skilful loving hand,
In what used to be called Bechuanaland.
The carving is simple, even austere,
But the intention extremely clear,
That this should be a timeless piece,
No artifice and no caprice,
Nothing high-blown, nothing glib,
Just a simple group around a crib…
