Wartime Peace

Survivors remember two thousand and seven,
entering hell having departed for heaven,
paying for assuming they were living among brethren,
dying for believing it's enough to be Kenyan.

Bubbles bulge in real estate
Importers fret over exchange rate
Inflation wreaks its faceless havoc
Satellites in the sky peep and eavesdrop
Pump prices peak nevermore to plunge
terrorists lurk beneath every hedge
Police in the streets patrol and apprehend
darkness dominates broadcast frequencies.
Judges try at home and abroad
Voters converge to voice concerns
Leaders 'consolidate' tribal blocs
Opinion polls aggregate the gist
Victims tire of polythene tents
Survivors remember two thousand and seven.
