The Curious Case Of Boka Meko (chapter one)

Part 1 of 3 (Enter the Befuddlement)
Shall we sympathise with the dead? No, we
shall not. They need not our sympathy. Let
us cast our sympathy on the living – on the
hard surface of ageing flesh; let us fling it on
the oasis of turbulent condemnation; dash it
against the walls of tragedy; or, worse still,
give it rein to linger within the bosom of
Not to edge on the laxity of transgression,
two plain-clothed men, swinging the batons of
inquisition, titling themselves significant
gunshoes, had volunteered to cast a pail into
the well of mystery that enveloped the
extinction of Boda Meko (this, of course,
was a drudgery taken up from lack of any
other venture to excite). The self-acclaimed
sleuths had sacrificed a significant level of
peregrination to the site of the misfortune,
where the mangled remains of Boda Meko
remained, and without much ado, had
attempted to break down the venerable walls
surrounding this Attention of terror, albeit
both mysterious and amazing. The
understanding of this tragedy, whose thought
had almost been allowed to dwindle into bleak
oblivion, was aroused by the honest
lamentations of witnesses whose fate had
caused to behold such ghastly drama that
resulted in Boda Meko’s inevitable expulsion
from the shores of the breathing.
The tree of absurdity was later faithfully
watered by the statements of the bystanders.
Boda Meko had been knocked horizontal by a
quadruple-wheeled Toyota. Since automobile
mishaps were not an uncommon happenstance,
there was not really supposed to be anything
of the event to hoist the eyebrows aloft, but
there was. The explanation for lack of logic is
usually an illogical hypothesis. Indeed, Boda
Meko had been crushed by a vehicle with
disfunctional mechanism, everyone had sworn
that the car was accelerating unnavigated.
Quite simply, the vehicle had travelled itself
without a driver and succeeded in flattening
the suicidal Boda Meko. The deceased,
shortly before his demise, had entertained the
thought of yielding up his unromantic ideas to
supplace them with others which eventually
should coincide with those of a different
Suicide was the north side of the triangle. By
prior arrangement of circumstances preceding
the central demise of the protagonist, Boda
Meko himself had been spotted disregarding
the observance of his cardinal point. He had
found the four-route junction the right place
to pitch a suicidal tent. With reasons later
exposed to the presiding sleuths, the hopeless
young man had perched himself – like a
spider – in the middle of a web of adjoining
roads. But because of his rather unimpressive
sartorial presentation, pedestrians had assumed
him to be one of those street gentlemen of
unsoundness of minds. And truly, by
observing the reality from the perspective of
rationality, it would not take a process of
psychological miracle to deduce, rather
positively, that it would take the turbulence of
thoughts and intelligence to nest oneself in the
heart of a +-junction. It takes nothing to
harbour suicidal tendencies, but it requires a
great deal of senility to carry it out with grim
determination. But in this regard, this unique
determination was such a virtue that was lost
on the man of twenty-something harmattans;
for on spotting the oncoming Toyota with a
familiar licence plate, the suicide reneged on
his conviction. Little unlike a yoyo, Boda
Meko sprang himself erect and attempted to
dash to safety in protection of the little
semblance of hope in his hopeless life.
However, with a fate so unfortunate, and a
situation so ironic, Boda Meka, in the
struggle to escape death, ran himself – like a
dislodged food particle – into the dentistry of
the Grim Reaper. The driver-and-brake-
deficient Toyota had climbed over him and
moved on for a few metres until it was held to
rest by a very solid concrete pole.
These revelations had caused the detectives to
postulate their first theory of the mystery:
Although Boda Meko’s initial plan was to
commit suicide, he was planning to inflict the
mortality by his own hand, therefore waiting
for a car to run him over. But the fact that
he had run at the sight of an approaching car
showed that he was not really ready to commit
suicide. Thus, at the moment of impact
between Boda Meko and the rogue car, there
was a thin difference between suicide and
homicide. If Boda Meko had run towards the
car, it would have been suicide; but if the
car had run towards Boda Meko, it would be
termed homicide.
How could it be suicide when everyone saw
that Boda Meko had attempted to run for his
life? How could it be homicide when the
vehicle had no driver?
