The Obama Effect

This is nothing personal

But we will make it our Business,

In the west, Obama hails from Kenya,

In Kenya, Kogalo is his home,

Jateros are his people(that’s what they claim)

Trying to stop one from seeing him is a century’s fight,

Forget about Mayweather and the other guy.

The most powerful man in the world will be landing,

Grass in Nairobi is coaxed to grow in hours, yet he won’t even notice it

All main roads and highways that Obama will ride over will be

Out of bounds for the common us

Even those close relatives from the lakeside will join us

As we stare on our screens eager to receive what he got us.

Lets not forget our ambitious brothers offering dowry

To the powerful daughters

Did we anticipate this? No way…

In my dreams, I saw the beast, the decoy beasts

Stuck in a jam, hapo Mombasa road,

That guy with a packet of sweets n the one with bananas

Fighting for that one window to get the dhow

Then I woke up to reality, the closest the common us;

Jateros and the rest of us will get close to him

Will be those much advertised set top boxes and our t.v

Karibu Kenya.
