this was my first poem to write.was inspired by the campaign manifesto of the CORD coalition in the march 4th 2013 Kenya elections.but they lost


Oh God, hear our cry,
Take it not as a try,
And we, do not betray.

Be with us in our undeterred struggle,
for eager triumph of the right,
And the dawn of light.

And spread confusion ever over,
The princes of mass plight,
And the advocates of human plight.

And let them know that righteousness,
Is mightier than sin,
And them only feel its ruin.

That might is only selfishness,
And cannot, ought not win,
To bring to our kins ruin.

Figures don’t lie but mighty liars do figure,
Open wide their eyes and let Kenyans figure,
Their plight under the mighty peoples figure.

Humbly to you this prayer we accord,
As the weak only you can afford,
To give us victory, we members of CORD.


Cord, Elections, Kenya, Tna
