Poem:The Driver

Written by Oluoch Madiang’


(In memory of the ones that left us; snatched away from the roads)

Heaven, we have arrived at these Pearly Gates unscheduled.

We had hired the driver to take us home;

But determined to eat up the road

Before the other drivers finished it ahead of him,

Our fast driver tore down the highway –

Commanding his tyres to gobble down the tarmac.

And being greedy in his feasting, the raging driver we hired missed our home.
