This is Cameroon!

This is Cameroon, Ici c’est le Kamer. Country for crayfish, Country for piment. Au Pays de la new tech, 32Go égale 500Go. Tanière des chatons domptables Qui se couchent sur les anciens lauriers. Hilton c’est 5 étoiles, Kondengui c’est 10 étoiles. La vida loca à Kondengui, La maison préférée des ministres. Bribery & corruption reigns, […]

Flo

I heard the wail To the wail I let my feet sail They had gone for a birthday Only to return on their deathday Pain pranced, birthing a din Saline rapids even on feelings so thin. In cars, came their clay Stars, save no say Scurrying to, curious a peep Scurrying fro, pain diving deep […]

At the sight of you…

At the sight of you, Eros broke his arrow Zeus fell from the skies Poseidon got drowned At the sight of you, Heracles’ strength failed him At the sight of you, Medusa got turned to stone The Pegasus lost its wings At the sight of you, Kronos lost control of time Charon refused drachma And […]

Solitude 2.0

To their smiles and laughs you clung Yet you were never quoted in their song And then you realised you were dung You were no part of the throng Subject of mockery, shunt and daunt Before smiles of people so cunt All you can do is shrink like a runt Head says you belong; heart […]

Pain Train

In memory of those who perished during the Eseka train disaster. They say no pain no gain Speed was the gain But in the end came pain And there was blood in the rain I try to stay sane Browsing through the LCD pane Looking for something to drain the pain Omnipresent is the pain […]
