Yussuf Muktar Poems
The Bad Bleach
She scratched her black beauty; The African colour I always loved. She became a dissenting chameleon; In dire need of unhealthy budget
As If We Lack Common Sense!
O' Muslims; O' faithfuls; O' people of Mandera County, Former dwelling with secure and well content Whose provisions did come in abundance from every place Through our filthy hands now turns ghost and gloom
I Am A Butterfly
Flowers and light, therein I am found Always happy, always flying Beautifully colored, so is my mind My wings and flaps carry no bombs
Confused at this very crossroad I held my cheeks high in dismay After a glimpse of new looks Of mean skinny milk-less goats
I share my play in the wilderness, Forested by bitter herbs and shrubs I hide and seek in a sweet game, With brethren, together born and bred!
Fleers and Flouts Frightened by the wave Pressure from tidings Eyes popped with claim
Who Else Is My Brother?
Ripped apart, divided and ruled- Our brave emperors turned slaves, In favour of the deadly arch foe, That always yearned for our blood.
Conflict Of Interest
I belong to the circle of the Wise; Honored by age, privileged by time. Necessity of unwarranted unity; Hanging on a thin line of interest;
Is My Life In Jeopardy?
I blindly celebrate in a gloomy mood As my right hand is chopped ruthlessly off By the very left hand that stood nearer In spoiling the good they could scoop
Confused at this very crossroad
I held my cheeks high in dismay
After a glimpse of new looks
Of mean skinny milk-less goats
Escorted by caravan of white-turbaned sheep
Grazing everywhere, producing none
I speak and say daringly right
Right here and there, without fear
