JOB HUNT

Written by: JOSEPH GATEBI WANJENGA

Here I am in town
With my sniffing dogs
And wearing eagle’s eyes
I climb over bomb blasted ruins
Searching for survivor jobs
From every cornering street
My dogs I scatter all over
Hoping they will un-earth
An opportunity
For me to be used
But all I hear is only
 A barking silence
I continue to wait and hope
That time will lick with a difference
For me to swing my tail
But now without fail
My tail is locked between
 My thighs waiting with
A chained impatience
Like a gold digger
For the dog they say 
Every day has
