Swallow Pool - Poem by Paul Mwenelupembe

History is a guide roller stone
The eastern star that stumbles on mile stones
Those mistakes still lights on the way
The best stare and tool in a corner cabinet
Praising, reducing and mopping you

It's such a swallow pool, engulfing force
Observant hole spot, rules of wild game pin pat
Oblivion the state of steel examinable coat
Errors like paper taste, great tutor and folder file

In a nice unfolded past, present lessons of torch
Play in the lounge, within you
This your likelihood, this your pool
But it's a pillar of salt, in front your knock
Behind you a saga, a radical book
Which rail you, rail you inside self centred
And retains thoughts, surrounding your fuss
Praising, reducing and mopping you


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Political life is refered as a swallow pool of which when the period is not utilised well it back fires. Look at the world readers some are gods some are humble like the son of man-Jesus christ. Such of god type are called world's worse dictators. Is it true? Look again at their lives, they end up like dogs or slaughtered animals. You can not even remember whether they were being praised. Surely politics is a dirty game if almighty God is not put forward. It mops indeed! ! So, history is our guide.........
