What does this african poem mean? Please help me by telling me what is the meaning behind this poem. I'm not sure if it has symbolism or imagery in it. Thank you in advance. --- Think I'll Go Home and Lie Very Still Translated by John L. Foster I think I'll go home and lie very still, feigning terminal illness. Then the neighbors will all troop over to stare, my love, perhaps, among them. How she'll smile while the specialists snarl in their teeth!-- She perfectly well knows what ails me.
