Nairobi At Night - Poem by Major Elazia
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
The women never end, they are still abundant
And the number of customers is never ending
A few coins exchange for a quality time,
I see talk show celebs and musicians waiting for their clients
You see I'm not quadrupled on four wheels
So I decide let me try Sabina Joy
And this must be Sodom and Gomorrah under one blanket
Their is no hiding, everything is open
The Luo ladies are saying 'don't hide, just floss'
And beer flows around in the heart of the city
Even the cabinet ministers' sons frequent this place
Well, this place is too open, someone I know may find me
It is said that on River Road you get all you want
Anything from China to Somalia is there
I try my chance their knowing their are many hiding places
I sneak into a known joint of Indians
All I find are pure Kikuyus who originated from India
And they speak Gujarati as I salivate in anticipation
Disappointed I chance Eastleigh, and I find good Somalis
You can say fresh imports and exotic beauty
I make a bargain and they have no issue
I can have them for my leisure the whole night
If I only buy everything in her stall at once
So that she doesn't worry about missing her clothe customers too
I'm shocked, what is the use of the hijab
If its intended meaning is thrown away like that?
Why don't I try Nakumatt Westgate in Westlands?
This is a place frequented by the rich spoilt kids
Some get so tipsy they forget to ask for payments
I'm lucky just to find one of that caliber
In my embrace she tilts her head and vomits on my shirt
She gives me three thousand bob for dry cleaning
And tells me 'Dude, are we leaving? ' And she chews a blackout
I try to leave the place, sneak my way out
But security guards pounce on me,
I'm forced to carry this rich kid out of that place
For three thousand shillings I get arrested and spend the night in cells
The finally the following morning
I leave minus my cash, but the girl rescues me, thanks.
She strikes me with thunder bolt! Gosh!
'Oh! Now she wants me to date her! '
