Diary of Povo

By Mbizo CHIRASHA, World BEYOND War, July 16, 2020


Another whistle from election fervent fathers
Another ululation from slogan drugged mothers
In Chimoio we roasted bullets like mealie cobs for breakfast
In Nyadzonia we boiled grenades like cassava for lunch meals
In Magagao we munched parcel bombs like tropical fruit
In Gorongoza, we learnt totems of war and syndromes of propaganda
Today, our ears are deaf with sediments of slogans
We are the Povo!!
