This country is twisted!
We are all insane, stop pretending
Stop telling me we are okay
We are not!
If you believe we are okay, then
Why the double standards among our leaders?
Why the tribal hate?
Why secession talk?
I can’t stand you, so I want out
Why is that?
Why are you celebrating while your next door neighbour is mourning?
We are scared, not sure if we will wake up the next morning
Talk of vigilantes in the air and the police,
Ain’t scared to shoot
Shoot to kill, why not?
No one is going to charge you
They were criminal elements purporting to be protestors
On TV, lies on the lips of the boss
The host is careful not to cross,
The government’s mouthpiece
The media is divided too, we no longer watch news
We just read tweets and Facebook posts
The mind loves uncensored shit, right?
Too much info, information is power, right?
Gag the mainstream, I go social
We go International if you ban local
That’s just the way it is, long live the internet
Long live Facebook and Twitter, and you tube…
Are you still insisting we are okay?
That Kenya is united and there’s no division?
We are all celebrating the supreme Court’s decision?
Why is Nasa threatening to swear in Raila on Tuesday?
That same day Uhuru Kenyatta is being sworn in?
Two presidents in one country?
Have you thought about that?
Of course not, so let me tell you
In case it happens, it’s going to be chaotic
Something ugly like South Sudan
Do you see the picture?
I know you are intelligent, you went to school
You can read my twisted words
And so you can understand what I’m trying to say
Doesn’t matter from which side of the divide you are from
Western, Coast, Central, Rift-Valley, Eastern or North Eastern Kenya
Doesn’t matter your tribe,
Mijikenda, Luhya, Luo, Kalenjin, Kikuyu, Kamba, Somali, Indian, Teso, whatever
Male, female or the “other”
Dark, brown, white or both (some slay Queens)
Rich or poor
Blue color or white color
We are not OKAY
This country is twisted, everything is loose
And if something is not done fast, we all lose
Unless you are a dual-citizen like Roseline Akombe and a few other lucky ones
