Hackneyed Signal

Poem By RONALD K SSEKAJJA

It has been my hallo
For I have been pushed in a narrow hall
And this year with its fret hail
Did welcome me with this haggle
And its true, I've lived in a struggle
And so I've been tied in a scuffle
While the hackneyed signal has held up the ruffle
Yet for this I've remained hale
Held out my hardihood in a tale
And the handy harrow stood in my tomorrow
Yet for it, I held my sorrow
For what will I do when one day they swallow
So I will sit and remain harequin
Dreaming that one day, you will read my pain

Silence

The silence was there
And she held it higher
And we all watched the space
To know, and face

The Eagle

The eagle flew by my head
And I know Every tide has it's ebb
And this thought is there
To heckle

I Held The Wire

So shall i tell her of the time
The glorious moment of the rhyme
In that same day i held the wire
She, with such a chance borrowed the fire

So For Once

Well, light is for bright
When the mighty can't write
For what pun is in the sun
When noon can't great dawn

They Look Down On Us

The sun did surely cross the mantel
And every thing having been held
None of us could break the wall
And this bliss being such bitter made

Travel With Me

Travel with me pretty maiden
That skies may speak our mother-tongue
Hold my hand a little,
For when men close their eyes
