Best Kizito Sidegu Poems

+ Fav Poet


Have known him from the cradle
mr politician alias muheshimiwa
call him baba and you diserve a bone
his proven to be quite a genius
he knows how to play cards
the best cone artist of our time

our karst roads remain the same
his all terrain vehicle
glides along the alpine surface
unaware of the dire situation
still though we voted for him
eulogized his name to get a few notes
his honey lips did the magic
and abracadabra the charm did work

in the congress room he reigns supreme
his itchy mouth always ready
to oppose even the best minds
unaware of his own house
that is falling down
piece by piece
and we the dupes
his children that made him
the man of the house
for generations long gone,
are at the verge of extinction

our roads are like the grand canyon
our schools have no seating capacity
our youths are in hyper poverty
our daughters drop out of school
our blindness the one to point at
time shall come when
wits shall meet
sparks shall fly
your going home muheshimiwa
