(By T Kebede, 29 January 2021) –
After days in a hideout, in silence;
Abiy Ahmed final came out to show his face;
As gloomy as a Buffoon in distress!
But the choice of a visit a place
Is indicative of the man’s conscience:
A factory for transtibial prosthesis
Amputated foot-soldiers now they have to get used
To walk round and about,
Once taken for granted!
But what a disgrace;
A man hailed as an epitome of progress
Decorated with a Nobel Prize to his name;
Cheered as a vanguard of peace,
Where democracy would flourish,
Albeit, Come to think, his accomplice!
And what did he do instead;
Unleashed a war all of a sudden?
What a disgrace!
To produce a swarm of legless
Unable to do what they knew best
Walk and work to earn their daily bread!
Never mind of the Tigrains nemesis,
He love seeing crawling on their knees!
What would the Norwegian Nobel utter;
When they decorated a dictator
Who prefers a gun than a handshake rapport;
When even unprovoked
Against people with good intent
Who labour all day long
And seeds to sow;
Then go to bed;
Hoping the good Lord
Would reward them with good harvest?
They climb treetops
To ward off swooping birds
Run all corners after ground pests
That are driven to lay waste
What they toiled and sweat!
People, more or less they did manage Locust invasions to prevent;
Until the Nobel doctorate contrived
And appeared in the skies;
Soon after the locusts have gone by,
With missile payloads
With intent to exterminate & uproot;
Side by side with an enemy they never thought,
Would join hands in the plot;
In a conspiracy the world
Has never seen or heard of!!
