HAIL MEDIA FREEDOM


Say what you want to
Write whatever you will
For what the August House is about to do
Will entrench media freedom
Deep into the abyss of our constitution

Down there in beautiful darkness
The freedom of expression forever will be
With it will go the freedom of assembly?
And many other freedoms which
Require the protection of the armed forces
To be guarded protected from mercenaries
Both from within and without

So Kenya will jump joyously
For the magnanimity of the god send
Leaders and politicians
For their good work in parliament

For the many bills that they’ve passed
We thank them
For the freedom they have allowed us
We are heavily indebted to them

Hail the freedom of the media
Hail the August House
Hail the wise electorate
Hail the interestingly twisted times ahead!

Hail 2012!
