Treasure Island

Chanda Nsofu

(Kasama, Zambia)


You bloody dictator
You brutal rapist
pinning the matherland to the ground
like a rape victim
to satisfy your lust for power

You bloody dictator
You grip the motherland
like a hawk grips chickens
with its tallons
Who do you think you are?
Do you think you are God?
Let me tell, you arrogant despot
You are just a mortal human being
who will give up the ghost one day
Whatever goes up must come down
One day, I repeat, one day
You will come down
You bloody dictator

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
