Donkey Soldier

Donkey soldier
Chewing miraa in a pop-out cheek.
Ragtag messenger of a swindler merchant –
What killjoy crusade is this you have enlisted for?

I see you seeking paradise tactless: creeping under your purchased ass,
Searching for me.
To soil my freedom. To spill my blood.
Sleep-starved donkey soldier,
Can’t you see you are the looker, I am the watcher.

Not seeing your watcher, you retreat to mull a vain reward…
Contemplating how to turn 72 virgins into ladies of sin;
Beautiful. Perpetual. Heavenly. Black-eyed.
Punda soldier seeking my blood, umedanganywa!

Look at you now. On heat…panting in the heat:
And believing you are unseen,
Pleasuring yourself 72 times atop a desert buur
Pity! Shabby guerrilla of a phony Shabaab calling.
What paradise is this you imagine separate from Eastleigh’s utopia?
What libido-wonderland of yoked virgins? No.
Not with my blood…

Well now, commencing your 73rd hand job…and having watched you,
My patience is run low and I train my 72mm barrel on you…
I see you approaching exclamation. You care not see me now.
I press the trigger and…Bang. Rat-a-tat-tat ragtag.
Take that!

Maybe your cheated phallus finds solace in 72, 000°C hellfire.
Bang, bang…Kwaheri.
