Poem: Kampala Thunderstorm

Read Time:39 Second

By Ibodo

From Kisekka

Cops come hurrying with guns

Turning sharply

Here and there

Like a plague of locusts

Shouting,

Tossing merchandise

Like madmen chasing nothing.

Pregnant teargas clouds

Fill the air with a pungent smell,

The baton swishes by

And a vendor falls on his back to let it pass.

Downtown,

Screams of Kikuubo traders,

In the din of the whipping batons,

Mechanics,

Barefooted, spanners falling from their overalls

Dart about

In and out

Madly;

The cops pursue

Whilst a welder falls to beg for mercy.

Owino market women,

dangling breasts, babies hanging on backs

Dash for cover

As the murderous batons

Rumble, tremble and crack

Amidst the hubbub of scampering traders

And the pelting march of relentless LDUs.

(A modern adaptation of An African Thunderstorm by David Rubadiri)

  1. Thanks for your post. I would love to opinion that the first thing you will need to perform is verify if you really need credit score improvement. To do that you must get your hands on a duplicate of your credit score. That should really not be difficult, because the government makes it necessary that you are allowed to acquire one free of charge copy of your own credit report per year. You just have to consult the right persons. You can either browse the website with the Federal Trade Commission or maybe contact one of the main credit agencies straight.
