Major Elazia Poems
Nairobi At Night
Nairobi at night is a place of wonders
I was really amused the another night
When I took a stroll down Koinange street,
I met the beauty and the beasts in wait for clients
Some ran away, some jostled for my attention
But I heard my own voice in another silent whisper
Here I am in Koinange sampling the best of the city
The night workers are well dressed and enticing
A Mercedes, a Jaguar, a Shogun, Prados and all

Wings To Fly
I sing my songs of lamentations cursing the day I was born,
Born a destitute into this folorn world of misery
And nursing hopes already cast on broken stones and forgotten promises.
Each day Itrek over the burning baren hills of fortune.
Saintly carrying a borrowed pen and paper taking another step in life
