Over Eating - Poem by DEDAN ONYANGO

It all began
With the lowering of the Union Jack.
The innocent land welcomed a new breed of thugs,
With their appetites like hyenas
A new mode of eating was invented.

Eating everything was their slogan,
While the two brothers; poverty
Disease became the masses song.
Eat that land,
Grab it!
Eat with gladness!
It's our time to eat one said another will add,
Their generations will payback what we've borrowed.

The loaf is not enough
Two loaves five fish
A miracle Christ did,
Yet here one eats alone
None remains, none falls, and their mouth are cupped
Not even a hiccup they swallow in haste the public cake.
Which many baked with their sweat
Oh! This eating game is so sweet,
Look at those mansions
They live in
While them, live in inns,
For tomorrow no place to call home
And roaming continues
And the Hyenic munching continues.
It is now full blown, everything continues.
Mountain like their bellies protrudes even the belt is unseen able!

It all began as a mere game,
Now it's shame,
The world is in pain,
Sanctions it has threatened upon the eating bigwigs,
With their wings in power they fight back, we shall not allow imperialism!
Colonialism is long gone,
Now it's Neo-eatinism!
Eat Pal, eat!
Less you be eaten…

In tears,
In jeers,
In sneers.
The eating game continues,
Hoping that one day in the name of the sun, the moon, and the ocean
Shall swallow all those that eat humanity
And restore back the long lost dignity and integrity,
