Motherland

BY KAGWA OFC DZONZI

Dizzy your eyes

Voiceless mouth

Your tears reaching heavens

Hopeless

Motherland

For your own children

Are now lions plucking your eyes

Sipping your blood like leopards

Crushing backbone of the economy

Is that the way you raised them

Educating them to steal

To plant acidic corruption

Spread injustice like wind

Wind that blows you down

Undressing you in public

Exposing your poverty

Dump you naked to die

Is that the way you groomed them

Motherland

Raising them to forget you

To love politics than development

Spread tribalism than unity

A flood that smashes your walls

To pave way for nepotism

Divide the same blood and colour

Leave you rotting in shame

Ooh! Motherland
