What’s a mother without 
her child? Or, a house sans
tenants? I dare ask you.
But that’s what causes unease
to churn in my stomach,
Forming ulcers and stuff.

Proud politicians -
Driven by their greed.
Misleading masses
while their egos feed 
on poor ignorants.

The HAGUE suspects
garnering votes.
Seeking office, 
while refugees

live in tents
of paper
five years since

war came
and caused


{NB: The term ‘refugees’ has been used to describe internally displaced persons, IDPs, who were uprooted from their homes following the post-election violence. H.A.G.U.E is the International Criminal Court that deals with crimes against humanity.}

    Vicky, this is my first exposure to your work..Your subject matter has such value and shows your deep sense of care for all mankind. Politicians do soooo many corrupt things that very few citizens will ever find out about ....and to think that LAWYERS have a bad reputation! I see the theme here as poverty resulting from corruption! I will be back to read more of your work soon. Blessings, gwendolen
