(By Temesgn Kebede) –
Turn to any corner if you like
Hide behind any nook
Or use as shield an inglenook
Vermiculite and twist to avoid
A direct kick on the neck!
Boast that you are a gladiator pyknic;
Spartacus or Crixus,
No one had brought to their knees!
Or pretend that you are a Abdisa Shemeles,
Who resents handouts from the US;
A hypocrite in disguise,
Who genuflects so bliss
At a Dollar’s site;
Its besmirched face to kiss;
As his empty wallet rather than it misses!
Would you say now with the same breathe
The dollar too is weevil sheathe;
You wouldn’t touch let alone kiss,
And come in contact with your teeth!
Exhibitionist that you are;
Show the drama world over
Commit crimes unheard before
But one thing remember:
You will be brought to justice
Sooner if not later!
