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
