One Evening - Poem by Hannington Mumo

One evening I was devouring my tasty meal
Of ugali and goat meat
(A delicious course for the seasoned eaters)
When there fell a streak of lightning that lit
All the dewy grass around me,
And crashed the branches of a nearby tree.
A deafening clap of thunder ensued
And the clouds dropped their tears;
It was rainy season again!
This awakened all my forgotten fears.

The rainy season came with its toll,
The Nature's wrath of floods
That affected and afflicted all
With its impunities of destruction and death!
