No Kenya, No Peace

If Kenya didn’t burn in 2013, why should it burn now?

Yet, we hold her ransom with our ‘fears, what if’s and better safes’

If Kenya didn’t bleed in 2013, why should she weep now?

Don’t we sing, nyimbo za amani and call to the heavens to protect her?

If Kenya didn’t burn in 2013, why should it burn now?

We’ve had commissions, coalitions and fast-tracked petitions

If Kenya didn’t bleed in 2013, why should she weep now?

Isn’t she on the Madaraka Express to 2030, China Time?

If Kenya didn’t burn in 2013, why should it burn now?

Hasn’t it not learnt to accept and move on?

If Kenya didn’t bleed in 2013, why should she weep now?

Isn’t her katiba her shield and defender?

If Kenya didn’t burn, bleed or weep in 2013, why with the panga sleep?
