Me, My Statutes and I

Lord, I beseech thee of three things:
That you may guard my Laws of Kenya book
The Constitution of Kenya and my Oxford Dictionary of Law
That they may not be eaten by my dog
Or get plucked by my maid

Lord, grant me a photographic memory
That I may glance at a caselaw and be done
Or read a section and keep the number
Or refer to a statute and let my mind
Be the data-bank

Take away my stammer, dear Lord
That I may talk like a real advocate
And not these fits and starts of sentences
That puts to shame all my reading.

C) Lorot Salem 2010
