Treasure Island

Michael Wamalwa

(10/02/1990 / Kenya)

A cruel beast


Corruption,
A vice so loved.
The voiceless,
Suffer in its hands.
The powerful,
Feast its fruits,
Corruption,
A vice so evil.

Land,
From it emanate.
Mansions,
Like mushroom they sprout.
Cars,
Like bees they swarm.
Corruption,
A vice so evil.

Poverty,
A son to it has become,
Who,
A by-product is,
Corruption,
A vice so evil.

Mercy,
To it is rubbish,
Prosperity,
In its mind constantly dwells.
Corruption,
A vice so evil.
