Mwambura's Choice - Poem by Ima Ryma
Mwambura scavaged off the land,
To feed his hunger's burning call.
Some strangers came with word in hand,
To spread the Christian faith to all.
They also came with sticks of fire
To use on those who would not heed
The chosen way of God's empire.
Mwambura joined the Christian creed.
He was rewarded in fine bribe,
With much prestige and property,
Once held by others in his tribe
Who did not choose the word as he.
Now others scavaged off the land.
Mwambura - he could understand.
