David Rubadiri Poems

1.
Begging Aid

Whilst our children
Become smaller than guns,
Elders become big
Circus Lions
...

2.
An Africa Thunderstorm

From the west
Clouds come hurrying with the wind
Turning sharply
Here and there
...

3.
Stanley Meets Mutesa

Such a time of it they had;
The heat of the day
The chill of the night
And the mosquitoes that followed.
...

4.
Death At Mulago

Towers of strength
Granite
Enduring
Like life itself.
...

5.
Kampala Beggar

Dark twisted form
Of shreds and cunning
Crawling with an inward twinkle
At the agonies of Africa.
...

Rubadiri calls to consciousness the plight of Africa in the hands of the West. Love his Pan Africanist posture.
