The State is my Shepherd, I shall not want;
It makes lie in greener pastures in the middle East.

It leads me besides overflowing water channels in Kampala taking my children and wife.

It restores my faith through censorship and social media control.

It guides me to the path of bankruptness for its taxation’s sake.

Even though we walk through the valley of the shadow of age limit,

I will fear no evil,

For Museveni will be with me,

His teargas, bullets and mambas will comfort me.

He prepares ministorial positions for hungry opposition M.Ps; It keeps Museveni healthy for 32 years and counting without any sickness.

Surely dictatorship and life presidency will follow

All the days of our lives.

And I will dwell in Slums forever.

The deaf mute poet 2017.
