For You Are a Kenyan Child
by Kelly Cunnane

You are a boy in a Kenyan village. You wake up and eat breakfast and then go out to watch your grandfather's cattle. You think that it won't hurt to go into the village to see who is up. So, you go from hut to hut, visiting. Have you forgotten about your job? What will happen when you finally remember your responsibility and find that the cattle are gone?
