Keenene — I want to eat RASPBERRIES

Keenene” is a Ugandan chant I first heard on W. Moses Serwadda’s collection, Songs and Stories from Uganda. It appears in a story in the collection about how some village children accepted help from an unfamiliar animal named Baluba and he ultimately provided a feast for them, including a voluminous amount of raspberries, which they shared with their neighbors. In class we dispense with the concept of sharing and DEMAND our favorite foods.
