SHAKA
[their final meeting before Shaka's return to his capital, where Shaka will be assassinated by his own aunt]... Tell me - How do you catch a monkey?
LT. FRANCIS FAREWELL
Well, a gourd is used... with a narrow neck. Bait is dropped into the gourd: a piece of fruit, or - or something shiny. The monkey puts his hand into the gourd to get the bait, and then he's trapped... because he can't get his fist out.
SHAKA
Once he realizes he's trapped, why doesn't the monkey let go of the bait?
LT. FRANCIS FAREWELL
Because his greed makes him blind.
SHAKA
And what is he greedy for?
LT. FRANCIS FAREWELL
What he thinks he cannot have.
SHAKA
And now - What new bait have you brought for this monkey? Something shiny? Like the freshness of youth? Or lost love?
LT. FRANCIS FAREWELL
...Hating my people is not the answer. Together, we can find another way.
SHAKA
No. You have already proven that you were never with me. You are a shadow, a man without a nation. Go. I have no need for you anymore.
LT. FRANCIS FAREWELL
GO? Go where? WHERE can I go?
SHAKA
Where *I* have been.
