by Leonard Masauli

We cried in sympathy
As you were quizzed for the truth
Not that you were guilty
But the greedy men thought you were a menace
You shined over the world
With your ideas of eternal unity
To bring back the country into sanity
As everybody leaned on your shoulders
Expecting the fruits of your gallantry
To fill their empty hungry sacks

But is this you deviating today,
Moving your nose in the air
Forgetting you were the only heir
As you trample on your intercessors
Pleasing everybody at the house
And let the World to suffer
But what’s wrong with you?
Lest we forget, you were good.
