If water tasted just as sweet to the wine-preachers
Then development would be a household term
A good life wouldn’t only be a reserve of the rich
but a property of the hard-workers
a right of the strong willed
the pride of those whose thing is zeal
If our leaders did as much as they said
Kenya wouldn’t only have one Matiang’i
but a couple hundred of them
and an economy worth a couple more millions.
Matiang’i*- education cabinet secretary, Kenya.
