Lesor allim Lemureniyeng me Ulinom! Ai wesewesen tirou womi sou-seres meinisin, upwe atoura kapwongen ei sosoran sipwe paro me lon ewe Ballad of Olap:

“Pwuupw lapalap we naur reWon; makuran Makur, arhepen Fais; ingin Wenimerouw …”  = “The gigantic Triggerfish for those from above, whose head is the Island of Makur; tail is (Jesse Raglmar-Subolmar’s) Feis Island; and torsal fins Wenimerouw” … give a long “waiooo” to Wenimerouw Achengicheng.

Do not be intimidated by the allusion that the Triggerfish belongs to, or is the favorite of, the whalers and beachcombers (reWon) from Portugal, Russia, Netherlands, England, etc who were summarily dismissed in another Weriyeng chant as “wonopekilo fanuwen lukulok” (just lay low quietly and calmly) .

Triggerfish among Carolinian seafarers is a specific sailing order or voyage in the shape of that ugly fish supposedly favored by the reWon or anybody considered, pejoratively, as “haole.” Be as that may, Speedy Micky, behave well on Makurerhik so as not to awaken the wrath of Souwoniras’ merciless mosquitos who have real people’s names that you gave (but I have not told yet to the people of Makur).

Do you have a Triggerfish this morning? Just smile and it will be a wonderful day, and let’s be thankful that the Magellan GPS seems to change the configuration of the Triggerfish. 🙂
