How Many Savimbis?

He cashed in on the clash of two ideas, ‎
A business opportunity that turned
A student of medicine into killer.‎
He couldn’t cash out; his cache of arms ran out, ‎
As did his luck, and, above all, his friends. ‎
Angolans celebrated on the streets
When his dead body, bullet-riddled, was
Broadcast – live – on his coveted TV. ‎
How many Savimbis have I seen die
