Tears of Treachery

Kaweesa Kaweesa is a political activist in Uganda (Africa), a country which has been under a dictator for almost all his years on earth.

Our dear ruder.


Our parents cheered, Nurtured and treasured you.
They sacrificed their Sanctuary and treasures for you.
Massively, they were mercilessly massacred
As they staunchly fought for you.

Why all the cruelty to their bereaved children?

The children standing scathing poverty-you installed.
Standing enslavement-at home
Turned into refuges, as you cruelly grab their orphanage land
Yet loyally pay all your steep taxes.
That enriches your family, clan, tribe and country.

Why pay loyalty with cruelty?
