You never cherished me as a diamond I am,
But as a chunk of familiar clay
Your contempt fingers abuse and misuse.
MY UGANDIAN ANGEL
From celestrial she appeared a gorgeous figure,
Such a beauty lacking intentions to lure.
In the dark soil of Uganda she was sown
Good night the moon of my darkest night
Good night the star that keeps my focus.
Good night the spiritual womb that birthed me
I will reunite with you in the blissful morning.
I admired a flower
And another plucked it
I wished to have a diamond
Another bought it first.
THE GIANT OF AFRICA
The giant's not asleep but awake in stupor,
Intoxicated by his minerals, his value sold.
