Good Bye General - Poem by Bamukunda Hillary

Good Bye The Most Loved
Farewell four star General
For you, we had police
Flourishing in the humane policy
Found of the romantic button charge
Filled with sympathetic looks.
Endangered were species of humanity
Those who embraced your boys on night patrol
The uniformed boy banks you trained
The traffic turned mechanic police men
Diagnosing diseased tyres and not serious engines
As they get their hands greased with papers
The bush war General without Miltarism
Except juicy community policing
Attracting millions of crime preventors
And employing various yellow bodaboda men
With I hear certifying NRM cadreship
Opposition was something forgotten
With the failed walk to work, unpopular activism
And all the foiled city demonstrations
Your name always held the banner high
With the aid of order management act
You held your law course high to action
From Wembley to kiboko squad and then beautification of Nalufenya gardens
The police was an institution to reckon with
The time is now
And the general bids farewell
At the time when nartual death has multiplied
And women seem to benefit most from the earth's fate
With a few muslim sheikhs and government officials.
The pangas tearing flesh as new artifacts in masaka
And Native comrades shot with porpcons during daytime
Why now of all times?
