The Circle of Life

EVERYTIME I mention the movie “The Lion King,”** one of my students will immediately break into song:

Nants ingonyama bagithi Baba
Sithi uhm ingonyama

One time I thought she was asleep, but she perked up suddenly, belted out the first few lines, and then slumped back down on her desk, not to be heard from again for the rest of class.

I’m almost sad we finished the movie before break… 😂

** “The Lion King” is loosely based on Shakespeare’s “Hamlet.”
