kelvin karani Poems

in the forest of life
a hunter kept searching
for a prey to stalk
and salt for a meal or two.
...

From the outset I must state
Old men (especially these!) and (some) women
Are not in me to hate
And thunderstorm I pray them not to strike
...

On that day the sun rose a little late
Or so I thought
A dark cloud lazily sailed around it
Making the sun shine grey
...

Get my children from school
When you get home, to my place,
Take mama watoto to the saloon
And come back here to take
...

To be a ghetto child
Is a challenge few surmount
For many are they who
Succumb to the temptations in the ghettos
...

At KICC bitter words were traded
The media was asked to leave
The police came; then the barrage
And in a secret office came results
...

A NAKED POEM
A naked poem
Struts in my mind.
With a body so fecund
...

The rain raps

On my humble roof
...

STEREOTYPICAL MAN

Man says,
...

Just the other day Mr. president
Begged billions for the hungry
All that money will be spent
To feed the hungry country
...

mother drags her bony mass
the winds of uncertainty
buffeting her from all sides.
above her the ominous cloud
...

OUR AFRICA *for David Diop, ‘Africa’
This is Africa,
your Africa
With an arc of a back
...

No more
Taking of silly slogans
Of change from the corrupt politicians
We need statesmen and stateswomen
...

So much suffering on the land
Dying of hunger the children are
The old too cannot withstand
The famine and deaths
...

into a dustbin
everything goes
from dust to papers
everything unwanted
...

My house is ablaze
Set on fire by my own kids
Who are fire playing with fire
But are arrogantly so
...

Where is the fire
That burnt in freedom fighters
Making them selfless
Dying for our independence
...

Children are taking years
Pursuing an education which
Defeats their little minds
However old they don’t flinch
...

Say what you want to
Write whatever you will
For what the August House is about to do
Will entrench media freedom
...

We are travelers
Journeying into the future.
We stand at the bus stage of life
Inside the bus love
...

The Best Poem Of kelvin karani

A Hunter

in the forest of life
a hunter kept searching
for a prey to stalk
and salt for a meal or two.
stealthily he moved
afraid of dry leaves underfoot
eyes fixed on a prey.
lo! without warning
the prey's image got blurred.
disappointed he trudged
only to meet a similar fate
home bound he trekked
a man bitter at fate
yet no one promised anything.
