Ilikanza ilo aho itunge igabyalwa umuzi iyi, yali itina manana nulu kapande ki nana. Giko igalilolela iligulya giki yulimilila mate na idadulile ugulala.

Aliyo ninga ya bhulebhu bhunubho itunge yaliyagina guti nyama ya kukomela. Giko majihumbi ga ndimu ganingaga jikali kugiki gameje makubhi ga mhindi na nsuji go kuwalwa.

KISWAHILI: MIZIZI YA BAHATI

Wakati  Popo alipozaliwa katika dunia hii, hakuwa na mbawa wala kipande cha ubawa. Hivyo alilitazama anga hivi hivi akalimezea mate na asiweze kuruka.

Chombo cha pekee cha usafiri alichokuwa amejaliwa kukipata ni miguu tu. Hivyo mwendo wake aridhini ulikuwa ni wa Kinyonga tu, ukiulinganisha na ule wa ndege waliokuwa wakirandaranda angani.

Lakini licha ya unyonge huo, Popo alikuwa amenona kama nyama ya kubanika. Hivyo maelfu ya wanyama walimwinda vikali ili wamfanye kitoweo cha jioni na susa ya kilabuni.

Hali hiyo ilimweka Popo katika wasiwasi mkubwa. Hivyo mara nyingi ilimbidi kujificha mchana kutwa, ili asigongane na jicho la adui. Alilazimika kufanya hivyo kwa usalama wake mwenyewe.

Siku moja popo aliota ndoto nzuri kama sukari. Nayo ni kwamba, eti ameota mabawa kwenye mbavu zake. Na kwamba, eti adui alipotaka kumkamata, yeye alitabasamu akaruka juu angani akarandaranda kwa amani na kumtemea kikohozi adui aliyeko chini.

Hata alipoamka Popo alitekwa kabisa na mawazo kuhusu ndoto hiyo. Alizitamani sana zile mbawa alizopigia mbwembwe katika ndoto usiku ule. Lakini hakujua kwamba sasa zilikuwa wapi, maskini, alitamani sana aruke angani kama alivyofanya ndotoni usiku ule. Lakini hakujua kwamba atawezaje, kufanya  hivyo.

Maskini Popo, tangu siku hiyo aliitafuta raha kama hiyo, asiione, kutwa kucha, alichemsha ubongo jinsi  atakavyopata au kukopa mbawa aruke. Lakini yote yalikuwa kazi bure. Hivyo mwishoni akawa hana jingine la kufanya ila kukata tamaa, na wakati huo alikuwa amekwisha kukonda kama sindano.

Lakini Popo huyu hakuwa kiumbe pekee katika dunia aliyekuwa katika hali hiyo ya kukata tamaa, kwani alikuwapo pia kiumbe mwingine hapa duniani aliyekuwa amevunjika moyo pia na kiumbe huyo ni mfalme wa ndege. Yeye tatizo kubwa lililokuwa limemtatiza ni moja. Huko angani wanakoringia ndege na vibawa vyao, kulizuka ugonjwa mbaya sana, na maelfu ya ndege walikuwa wakipoteza maisha ya Roho zao kila siku.

ENGLISH: THE ROOTS OF FORTUNE

When bat was born in this world, it had no wings or a piece of wing. So it always looked at the sky and admired other birds but it could not fly.

The only transport it had been given to get along with were the feet. So its motion was just like that of the chameleon, if we compare it to the birds that fly in the sky.

Despite that weakness, the bat’s body had good meat. So thousands of animals hunted it attempting to make soup for dinner in beer clubs.

This situation made the bat to be very much concerned. So, it often had to hide all day long so as not to face the enemy’s eye. It had to do so for its own safety.

One day, the bat dreamed a dream as sweet as sugar. It dreamed that it had wings on its ribs. When the enemy wanted to catch it, it flew into the sky. .

After getting up, the bat was only thought about that dream. It longed for the wings it had enjoyed that night. But it did not know where they were now.  Poor bat, it wished to fly in the sky as it did at night during the dream. But it did not know what to do in order to fly.

It wished to borrow wings to fly. But they were all hopeless thoughts. So, at the end, it had nothing to do but despair, and it had become thin like a needle.

But this bat was not the only creature in the world that was in despair, for there was another creature on earth who was also disappointed with the creature as king of the birds. It had a big problem that had been the same. In the sky, where birds enjoy flying with their wings, a very serious disease occurred, and thousands of birds were losing their lives every day.
