Pythons In The Cave by Patrick Hwande

I, too belong to the cave
Where pythons reside
The multi-coloured reptiles
With subtle manoeuvres
I used to live in the same cave
With nominal rights and responsibilities
It’s a hell-hole where powerful pythons
Flout rules with tremendous bliss
I belong to the cave
Whose vibrating heat
Drove me far, far away
Now I rummage for bread and butter
In better lands
I belong to the cave
Blessed with silent majority
And the vocal minority
Where blazing blankets bubble
In furious fire
It’s a cave where the Honourables
Have what they don’t need
While Super-patriots don’t have
What they desperately need
