The Best Poem Of Rose Kanana

Spare Us Your Lies

With pomp and style we are entering a new era
We have pimped our vehicles
We have painted the vehicles- attractive
We have sewn the campaign regalia
We are gearing for a rigorous era
Shhh remember children are watching you
Shhh remember our ears aren't deaf

Spare us the vulgar words our dear politicians
Spare us your public mud slinging
Spare us your lies
For what we need is the delivery of services
That is why we cast our vote for you
You will spend every dime to lure us into your camp
Like sheep we will be immersed into your vain talk

Why are we this gullible in this era of civilization?
As you pick that microphone dear politician
Know that we so much look up to your word
Know that the society holds you accountable
Tell us what you will deliver for Wanjiku
Spare us your lies
Don't drain our taxes into campaigns
For we still have cancer to grapple with

The history we read stated that by 2015 all households will have tapped water
It is now 2016 we still carry water cans on our fragile backs
Tell us of good governance
Let those who have been working give us a profile of their action
We need no insults to those that labor
We need no perennial pomp

We are happy that you will feed idlers
We are happy that the youth will have perennial jobs during campaigns
But remember good governance is what we cry for
Remember that vanity is discouraged in Holy books
Dear madam-sir politician listen to your inner voice
Before you voice your words in public.

Rose, your poems are the best! I have read some and I really appreciate them. They are similar to those of another great poet Nyota but more mild. Keep up the good work.
