Dreams


I do dream militant dreams
of taking over Kenya
and showing these African politicians
how it should be
done
I do dream radical dreams
of blowing everyone away with my perceptive powers
of proper governance and political responsibility
I even think I'll be the one
to stop rot and corruption in public offices
indeed I dream of uniting Kenyans and killing nepotism
But then I wake up and dig
that if I dream natural
dreams of being a natural
citizen doing what a citizen
does when s/he's natural
I will have a REVOLUTION!

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me

If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
