With fire burns the fool who knows only how to put it on but lacks the trick to put it off
Hadrawi, A Somali Poet

Somalia has been set ablaze by warlords
Who had fought tribal wars over a decade
They had a target to overthrow a leader
But had no vision beyond toppling a boss
Instead of turning to each other with love
They had turned on each other in hatred
They had the brains to put a nation on fire
But lacked the intelligence to contain it
Somalia is still burning like a bush
It is shrouded with a smoke of grief

Adbi, this is so sad, but so truthful...greed but no ability to think ahead of the greed! This is truly an inspiring piece of poetry. My prayers are with you & your family.
