YOUR SHIP HAS SUNK – BY NIKKO TANUI – FROM  KENYA
In greed you are on top of the league
What have you done to deserve a fat cheque
Whereas your record reads zero
And you are nobody’s hero
Aren’t you just wolfs pretending to be lambs
as mwanaichi feed on crumps?

See, when teachers, doctors, and others go on strike
you rubbish their demands for a simple pay hike
but when it’s time to butter your bread
you apply a thick layer of margarine spread
God help us, in greed you have unity
 that borders insanity!

For passing gas, sleeping in the House
to chasing anything in a blouse
you now want to smile all the way to the bank
but your ship has sunk
you will be lucky if you’ll make a come back.

You have done nothing for the nation
but rape it without any emotion
but come this General Election
we will make a wiser selection

From your verses, it is easy to see, that politics is pretty much the same everywhere. Once they get in power, they tend to use it to abuse it. Thanks for the enlightenment.
