David Munene wa Kimberly

Idlers’ Paradise

Empty minds of pride and gait
Who shall for you open the gate?
So you perceive freedom
And intelligence of dome
For the far you see
Is no far than the folly sea
The near you perceive
Is no near than deafness can receive

You dream of glory
For no one do you feel sorry
Like thorns tearing flesh
You are insensitive when you thresh
Your haven is ignorance
For you give knowledge no chance
Your glances are squinted
And feelings stunted
Your glory
Is purely gory

Break, Recess: She Stayed Away

For need beyond comprehension
She takes and needs a recess that causes tension
In respect it’s accepted lest we contradict the sensation
“Not long”, she has stated; trust is taken by she by mention
“Beyond the break, think not”; aye there’ll be adhesion
Wish it was that easily done as said in satisfaction
Withdrawal is the policy; break is the regulation
Wonder is no longer mystery, mystery is insinuation
Science told me not to; withdrawal draws aggression
Respect, respect, hers I respect decision

Bearing the big flamy eye
All was kept from my sky
Never had I ever seen my conversation die
I in reality will keep off and never try
My mind whirled; and tumultuously yet easily like a pie
No caveat emptor so I never saw it nigh
I had to not accept, but this was by no means a lie
She needs exemption, from others and I

Karisa, Wangari, Michuki and Karume

Now I know what heaven requires
This I learnt in a black, blackish week
The gospel about the humble and the meek
The passing on of one man who my soul inspires
And that of another whose memory will like glue stick
Also, one man whose vibrancy made graft creek
In-charge of the government local though not as weak

I know as well what bliss doesn't yearn for,
Not for men who perform as four
Or for women who only assume the front form
Seldom for hypocritical international pacifiers
Rather for a local governor like Karisa
Or a change driver who fuelled affirmatives in his maisha
Like one Michuki whose footstep made retrogressions quiver
Once in a while, a Karume whose progress would never waver

Governance in Heaven badly needed to keep it clean
From mother Kenya it found a local government champ
Karisa cleaned heaven and restored the local lamp

Urban Time vs. Rural Time

3 am:
Urban time: Alarm clocks, hoots and toots
Rural time: Cocks crow, cows moo and weavers beaker

4 am:
Urban time: Whoever snoozed the alarm? Dress up… very scarcely
Rural time: Dust the mat; grab yesterday’s very hard ugali and into overall

5 am:
Urban time: Marikiti and Gikomba beat traffic – rush hour
Rural time: Milking and feeding; early bird catches the worm

6 am:
Urban time: Office not open, tarts hover at Koinange zonked with sleep
Rural time: Coffee farm supervisor calls out names – mine missing

7 am:
Urban time: Offspring sings national anthem in academy playfully
Rural time: Sibling barefoot sings “Yesu anipenda” without blasphemy
