Treasure Island

alexander opicho

(when dictatorship began / kenya)

They Derive Pleasure From My Agony


They refused to give me what is due to me
They maliciously withheld and usurped
all that is genuinely mine
Lest I my be happy and easy going
And they made me a pauper
Tortured me with economic despair
Before my children and my wife
From which they all derived pleasure
Indeed they suffer from stark sadism.
