“Oh Ethiopia for how long? … How long?” By Lemlem Tsegaw

I cry no more

I laugh no more

I walk no more
I sleep no more
But stand
On a human right ground
and ask
“Oh Ethiopia for how long? … How long?”
For how long
Do we walk
Under a tyrant’s
Shadow
For how long
Do we dance around
While being whipped
By the tyrant
In his compound?
I dance no more
For a penny
Just to ride on
A tyrant’s pony.
Shame to all
Who rule
By the barrel of the gun.
Under a tyrant rule
Say no more
Ethiopia
I ask once more
“For how long”
