This classic piece is one that you read and go like; ’enough said’ no word ought to be ejected or added to this masterpiece. I hope you enjoy it.

Psalms 23 part II

The state is my shepherd, I shall not want; it makes me to
Lie down in a subsidized house
It leads me to political tranquility; it restores my faith in a lucrative future.
It leads me into paths of loans and pensions,
For its international reputation’s sake.
Yea, even though the valley of the shadow
Of Kivvulu I will fear no Kondos;
For the state is with me, its tanks and guns comfort me.
It preserves for me a bank account, in the presence of devaluation;
It fills my pockets with allowances, my salary overflows.
Surely increments and promotion follow me all the days of my life;
And I shall dwell in senior staff quarters forever.

Really love this... It is lyrical, satirical and allusive. This brilliant.

Please, sir, how can I get in touch with your other works?
