OUR LAND: OUR PROSPERITY











we were born here,
we fought here,
we live here,
we loot here,
we are corrupt here,
we shall be killed here,
we shall die here,
we will be buried here,
in our land,
which is our prosperity.

ELECTION THOUGHTS








……dinner of violence,
nights of grief,
breakfasts of torture,
lunch of slogans,
…. the irony of democracy,
the maze of freedom,
the dream of change.

Somalia Sings "Help"





America blasts bombs in Libya
Masses are buried by hunger in Somalia
South Africa funds flashy Mswati in Swaziland
When millions go for days hungry in Somalia
Zimbabwe pays generals and supports foreign missions
When millions die hungry in Somalia
France funds NATO to bury Libya
When thousands of children are hungry in Somalia

THE TYRANT














This is the boy
Who refused to be silenced,
The boy,
Who refused to be oppressed,
The boy,
Who chose freedom in oppression
The boy,
Who took his own way
The boy,
Who spoke the truth against threats
