The insurgents have been defeated in the city of Mogadishu and African soldiers are taking control of the city, relieving the Ethiopians from the task of securing peace in Mogadishu. In this poem I talk to an AU soldier whose expenses are covered by the government of the United States of America as part of its war on terror. Phot by Shabelle Radio in Mogadishu


Dear Soldier of the African Union
You look like those who killed us
How do we know that you are different?
Behind you we see an Ethiopian Soldier
Strolling in peace amid bombed building
We also see an insurgent-like militia
Wearing a red scarf on his empty head
Are you sure that both will not harm us?
Or that depends on how well US pays you

It all depends on how much the US government is willing to pay. They do not care about anything else. Thanks bro

This is a very wise question after all that Mogadishu has been through, Abdi-Noor.

I would be hard pressed to trust anyone if I were you, Abdi-Noor. No matter the reports, I would not believe that the "insergents" have been defeated, they have a way of regrouping and resurfacing, taking that which is not theirs to take and having little regard for human life. The one thing in your favor, I suppose, is that there is little for them there and perhaps that will send them fleeing to another place and hopefully out of your neighborhood. No matter how things seem, you can be sure that living under the control of any Army will not be like living in freedom. I pray that this will be the first step toward freedom and to a government by the "good people" of Somalia. I keep you and your family in my prayers, Abdi-Noor and hope that with each day, your lives will come closer to a peaceful existance and to a life of liberty.
Take care,
Sherry

You bring home a very good point. I pray for all for their continued success. Good write.

Be safe,
Karen
