if you believe Feletoa,
while Cook was busy deciding that Tonga was named
‘the Friendly Islands’
the chiefs were plotting to murder him
but they couldn’t get their shit together in time
and instead they let him go.
to me that’s fakafonua,
embodied in the twelfth movie ticket that appears and
120 Moala fingers, confusing the adults and amusing the kids
morphing into something we might have never had
and Uncle Penitoa doesn’t get to see the movie.
