Vote for Rules

13 Dec

Pebbles are buses hurtling into the air
Women and babies are tossed out like grain
Men with lost souls grab bags of dead souls
Youth with bloody minds do a march to evil
Angry spears will gut policemen tonight
Kenya races to murder, to death, to hell
I sip on my glass and press the remote
and wonder if these people are Kikuyus like me

A President drops bus rules to pick up votes
The Minister represents himself overseas
A creamy investment is sliced first for him
His Assistant nibbles at a housing scheme
An MP drools at a business moving like a tortoise
Cocaine moves quicker and feeds faster
Cheers to these men who are Kikuyus like me

The bus crushes into my gate
Red-eyed youths break through the doors
Police will only help if I give them a ride
A spear pins my wife to the ground
Neighbours are running and screaming
Am spinning and my house is heaving
I open my eyes and press rewind
I will vote for rules and not for Kikuyus like me
