Adult Game by Samuel Ndango

Samuel Ndango | August 5th, 2009 | poetry | No Comments

The leader decides the rules of the game
And how the game is to be played.

Speak and no one objects.
The people may speak but he has the final say.
He may choose to ignore them or grant their needs.

No one is allowed to leave until the game is over.
The people may be hungry but he decides when they should eat.
The people may be sick but will get medicine when he says so.

He pretends to listen and gives to the people only when he wants
To increase his popularity and stay as leader.
He makes promises that he cannot keep.

Adult game plays with the mind of the people. It is played in the
Direction that favours the leader.

To the people, the rule says practice what you preached before
You became the leader.
