a) Oral Poem

Read the following oral poem and answer questions that follow (6 marks)

One hand cannot manage work
A threshing stick cannot thresh millet with
One hand
Some hands breed hatred at eating time
Nobody hates being assisted

Let millet be threshed
Let it be threshed, let it be threshed

Cut a threshing stick for me
A lazy wife
Is taken back to her parents
When the rain fails
It blames the wind
And a lazy woman
Blames the threshing stick
Cut a threshing stick for me-ii
My co-wife cut me a threshing stick
You woman, owner of this occasion
Remember that work is the stomach
Take care not to starve us
The threshing sticks are sounding
Let the millet leave the threshing ground

(Adapted from Oral Literature of the Embu and Mbeere by CiarunjiChesaina)
