Pointing fingers is as easy as a hobby for most
Some raise others and shamefully dare to boast
Their judgments based on fictional facts
They rush into hasty irrational acts
They say that it’s “taking law into their hands”
But I think it’s more like “taking LIFE with their bare hands”!!
. . .
Yesterday they ganged on me with machetes and stones
Hacked my head and limbs and broke my bones
A voice in the angry mob asked “kwani huyu ame-do?”
The man wielding a machete replied “me sijui. Nimepata akichapwa tu”
“Mwizi!! Mwizi!!” Retorted the crowd
As I writhed in agony on the blood-filled ground
They began to shout, “Lynch the man!!”
I cried and pleaded, “I’m not the one”
Even in this economic estate, so adverse and dire
Someone generously provided paraffin to put me on fire!!
Bylaws created by a heartless environment
After my death, they discovered I was innocent!!!
