Poems of Protest 1.

1. Yeah, senseless

Yeah, Senseless
Do you hear?
All women are mine, Webster
In my Angolan village.

Incorrigible corrupt
Creating chicken economics
At Bretton Woods, COMESA
….international thievery.

Still, you dream

And you,
With your sexually transmitted degrees
Retire to abyssimal oblivion
I drank your water
Swallowed your bait
Waited
waited
and waited

That fool is a politician
he fooled me AGAIN
Yeah, Senseless



2. A Baby is a Politician

A baby is a politician
when he needs us
he comes crawling
begging
cajoling
kneeling
To the point of weeping
When he comes of age
Denies we changed his diapers.
