LEGENDARY HEROES

Invading hounds swept over the country

With guns, knives and swords barbarians swallowed a vast territory;

At the coast Mijikenda contingents roared against the pale foe

In the highlands warrior’s spat fire while spinning bows in rows;

Mekatilili politicized and Madori readied the population

Koitalel schemed and Waiyaki recruited in to the battalion

Chewing fog and riding mist, Sakawa commanded heavens while Mumias supported the rear;

In talent, could any at the van with General Ngunju Gakere compare?

Of Abu shiri’s brutal fate,
whose heart, to recall, even today would not kindle with painful tears?
