A scorching mele by someone calling themselves Mauuhilo, 1893.

Ke ala o ka mea Pohihihi.

E kuhi ana wau he oiaio
Ka manao o ka pua Gadinia
Au i hoohae iho ai
Ke keha la oe i ko laki
Nawai e ole ke aloha
Ua kuikahi like ka manao
Manao aku au a he pono
Eia ka oe a he muhee
Kukala ae oe i ke akea
Na huahele hoonui ike
I ike a o luna me lalo
Na hana kaulana a Biuteona
Noonoo ole iho no oe
A he aupuni nui Hawaii nei
O oe a owau kai ike iho
I ka pua kapu o ke kihapai
Kupu ae ka manao me ka hilahila
Na hana hoi a ke aloha ole
Aole no au i mahui mua
A he waiwai hui na ka opua
He nui no wau a he hiwahiwa
He punahele na ka Ua Kuahine
Haina ia mai ana ka puana
No ke ala o ka mea pohihihi

Mauuhilo.

[I wonder what the story being told here is about. There sadly seems to be betrayal by someone who was trusted. Sadly during this time in history this was not the only instance.]

(Lei Momi, 12/11/1893, p. 7)

Ke Ala o ka mea Pohihihi.
