Damn i woke up hungry, tried to eat some breakfast guess what!!!!
I got no breakfast!! why?
I only earn kshs 500 per week, yet i need money to buy even a mandazi
Will i eat breakfast or make sure my kids go to school?
and by the way my kids haven’t had breakfast either
I woke them up to go to school and they are visibly hungry
I can barely hold back tears as their mum offers them porridge
I get ready, brush my teeth but i have no toothpaste, what do i do?
I come up with my own science and use salt as toothpaste
I am one of the lucky ones with salt in the neighborhood
Gotta shower my cold water, we share the bathroom/toilet with 12 others
The toilet stinks, but i gotta shower real quick coz im late
Im not really late its six o’clock in the morning but dude i have to walk 15km
My Indian boss will fire me if im even 2 minutes late
I get to work, do my thing, its fucking hot, no breakfast
My stomach is growling, before i know it, boss its lunch time
I got 50 kenyan shillings in my pocket, i take my ugali and watery beans
Sounds disgusting right? But that meal tastes lobster coz i was hungry.
After work as i walk back home with my colleagues and paid my 500 shillings we stop by to buy UNGA for dinner
The price is deflated and we ask ourselves, do our leaders know we exist?
Do they know what we do to even eat something?
Do they know toothpaste is a luxury?
Do they know i have no clean toilet?
Could they construct for us a decent housing?
Yet i see them accused of robbing millions of taxpayers money
could they sacrifice some of the stolen money for we the marginalized?
Like some Robin Hood type shit
Most importantly do i have a president?
HAHAHAHA MAN YOU LEADERS ARE LUCKY, much as i want to be in your shoes right now? MY CONSCIENCE WILL NOT ALLOW ME TO SEE MY PEOPLE SUFFER.
