Why I Must Die - Poem by Bamukunda Hillary

*Why I must die? *
.
Because am a nodder
Whose head must squander
With the shake shake dance
Am left in a trance
.
If salary is immunisable?
And operation wealth creation dependable?
If the constitution can be amended?
And crime preventors promoted?
I hear they are army substitutes.
Tell me nodding disease is bearable?
.
I hear I must die
Because am a nodder
An entertainer whose head excites ministers
and members of Parliament
I represent better memories
How I wish I was their relative?
Funeral services would bury me
That's what they can afford
Entertainment Vs Entertainment
.
