Margaret,

This is about the best I could do in Eskimo on the subject of migration
to Africa. ( sorry.... ) I regret also the dialect is somewhat
suspect - west region Greenland I think :-)

Igloo taken tu uganda
icy landen in revu,
innuit meni lifta handa
saila bota land anu..

iglooii afro melta wata,
en uganda, sun alyt !!
iglooii flo, soggi sorta,
eskimoi nolonga wite !

browndoffi eski gobaka homa,
fishi landa, icy beer,
iglooi freezen, homa plenti,
uganda landa, veri queer !

I won't give you a new topic. I think the Literature Board is coming
to a sad end, especially with work of this calibre :-)

this will serve very well for an epitaph for former Ugandan dictator Idi Amin, who died a couple of days ago, in exile in Saudi Arabia.
