…After 16 years of anarchy, came the Islamic Courts. And though regarded by many as hardliners, yet they managed to secure the capital and bring some much-need stability into the region, and the public heaved a much-needed sigh of relief, for once.
…The Transitional Federal Government, upon witnessing the heaps of praises and welcomes awaiting the Islamic Courts at most cities, became envious and implored the might of the Ethiopians.
…Then they came in numbers
…Along with heavy military arsenal
…overpowered and defenseless, we just looked on
…as they marched through our soil, city after city, armed to the teeth.
…They even belittled our former soldiers and generals, displaying their weaponry as they towered over them under the scorching sun
…so we took it to the streets and protested
…and burnt whatever dead branches and logs we could find
…and the few tyres we could uncover from the rubble
…but they just laughed at us.
…so we got on our SUVs
…and ran to the bordering country to escape the chaos
…but there too, the merciless kenyan gunman awaited, in ambush
…With great effort, we made it to the refugee camps in a desperate attempt for peace and some serenity. kicked out of our own houses, our own land, our own shade! Today we live as refugees in other countries,
…while they rejuvinated under the cool shades of our trees along with subservient warlords at their disposal!
