In Nora Strange’s 1933 novel Kenya Noon, a raucous party of Anglo-Kenyan settlers, gin and tonics in hand, exchange limericks satirizing the bad reputation of their community. One “bright young thing” entertains the crowd with the following offering: Adam and Eve after the Fall Settled in Kenya. Now lis’en all! Draped in a skin up to the shin, While he fashioned a boma, She danced in n’goma And let in original sin. (Kenya Noon, 201).
