Rookie [The King of Modern Day Poetry] (8th December 1987 / Nairobi, Kenya)


Where were you when i lived on gunshots and teargas,
When the violence intensified and put fear on us,
When the police brutality coasted me a friend and my face,
When the eviction notice saw me part ways with my place,
Now that you are all suits and tie,
You ask for my vote and leave me to die,

Internally displaced in own motherland,
Why should i flee while the perpetrators walk Scot free,
