diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
Sure, one could get to
Mbabane the usual way.
Cross the plain to Malkerns Market,
pass the Royal Kraal of Sobhuza at Lobamba,
gamble to overtake chugging buses,
passing by comical South African tourists,
in pursuit of forbidden fruits at the Casino,
then climb out of the Ezulweni and enter Mbabane.
At night it could be
With long lines of fire on mountain sides,
Smoke mingling with the cloying scent of orange blossoms,
Amid the roar of the Christmas beetle.
But there is another way to Mbabane...
It is farther but much more rewarding.
