Mheshimiwa walks big, talks big
Drives big
And lives big
In leafy Nairobi suburb

Mheshimiwa wears expensive Italian suits
Dines in expensive foreign hotels
Carries two slick phones
And flies monthly to Britain and China

Mheshimiwa is loved by all
Except by Press
Which sullied his name in scandal
Prompted by his political opponents

Mheshimiwa loves his people
Living in mabati* homes
Eating wild fruits
Dying of cholera

Of course Mheshimiwa knows their needs
That’s why they need to vote him in
For the third term in office.
