Humanity! Where are you? Who took you away from us? Why have you forsaken us Or, are we the ones running away from you?
Yes! We no longer value you. We regard you as nothing We value money more than our children lives. All this to get rich faster Yet, you are more precious than riches. For it were not for you Riches would not have been found
Defilement cases are increasing Mother and daughter, father and son Rape cases, our cup of tea, our daily news A one month old defiled by a 60 years old man News of shame My question is this Is this what you call humanity or human for money?
Kibera is crying Families are mourning The cruel arm of HIV later snatches our beloved ones With brutality, innocent lives are sometimes lost To add insult into injury…perpetrators escape with no conviction I keep on wondering What will quench this thirst of brutality? We worship alcohol, we smoke bhang, but it bangs our heads instead Because of power and authority We pounce on children Is this what you call humanity?
Humanity! Are we not of the same flesh and blood? Where are you-who took you away from us? Nobody? We no longer value you
