ሆድ ሲብሰኝ…

እግዜር የለም
እናት ዓለም
“እግዜር አለ” አትበይኝ
ተሞኝተሽ አታሞኝኝ
እግዜር ካለ-
የዱለኞች ጠበቃ ነው
የክፉ ሰው አቡካቶ
ፊቱን መላሽ
ባመፅ ፈራጅ
ደሃ ሲበደል አይቶ
ላለው ወዳጅ
አጎብግዋቢ
ጉልበት,  ገንዘብ,
ብሔር,  ቀለም,
እግዜር ካለ
[ፍቺኝ እማ]
ከከሳሹ ጎን ልጠራ
ከጠሉት ወገን ልመደብ!

በላን ብለው ለተበሉ ሁሉ :)

ወፌ ላላ
ወፌ ላላ
ወፌ ላላን..
– ልበላ
ወጥመድ አጥምጀ
– ደጄ..
የፀሐይ ወበቅ
– ሙቀት..
አንቀላፍቶኝ
– አለሁበት
ወፌ ላላ
– መጥታ..
ስጤን
– በልታ
በርራ ሄዳ
ኖሮዋል ለካ
ወ-ጥ-መ-ዴ-ን
ሳትነካ!

“ነፍጠኛው” ፈረንጅ and those who love him :)

The most beloved, the most cared-for, the most thought of and prayed over ፈረንጅ of the ሀበሻ Facebook World of the last few days. And why? Because a bunch of Oromo kids beat the crap out of him over something, I am almost sure, he had coming [why else is he sitting, unmasked, next to an Ethiopian girl waving our flag?!].

“ወደው አይስቁ” አለች ወርቄ!

ድሮ ድሮ በጥቁርና በነጭ መካከል በሚነሳ ጠብ ሁሉ, all of us, ግር ብለን ያገራችንን/የወገናችንን/የቀለማችንን ሰው ለመደገፍ ነበር የምንቸኩለዉ [Remember the story of the Kenyan who received a ጥፊ from the እንግሊዝ?!]. Not so much nowadays. “All Oromo things bad, all non-Oromo things good”, seems to be the thinking behind the Facebook-ድጋፍ-ሰልፍ/መቆርቆር/መንገብገብ on here whitey’s behalf. It is both comforting and disconcerting to notice how our loyalties have remained pretty much the same despite the changing demography of our tribality [or is it vice versa? እግዜር ይወቀው]. የጠላቴ ጠላት, it appears, is still ወዳጄ ነው. Whether እውነትን ተገን አረገ አላረገ, whether he or she was guilty or innocent of the deed, even if we did not understand why and on whose behalf [and against whom] the athlete crossed his arms at the finishing line. And despite, I might add, the voice of reason from some of us pleading “አረ ረጋ እንበል ወገን, ጎራ ለመምረጥ አንጣደፍ, የጅብ ችኩል ቀንድ ይነክሳል, etc! One can’t help but observe how we may have come a long way from our የቀይ ሽብር days. But our ways, our thinking, our reasoning, has not travelled far. ያሳዝናል. ብሎም ያሳፍራል [እንዲል የዛ ዘመን ካድሬ] 🙂

#BanFacebookInEthiopia

ዝ—ም በይ ሐገሬ
ወርቅ ነዉ ዝምታ
ምን ደግ ይወለዳል
ከግደል ተጋደል
[እኔ’ብስ እኛ’ንግስ]
ሽለላ ፉከራ
ቀረርቶ ቀረርታ

For the quiet, my [“እሪ በይ ሀገሬ “] generation, and those who, like me, are grateful that Facebook is banned in Ethiopia.
Knock on wood!

Limerick, Ethiopian-style

የ-ሞ-ተ-ስ….
አረፈ
ከጣድቃን መካከል
ስሙ ተሰለፈ
ደግ ደጉ ተመርጦ
ስራው ተነገረ
[ጀብዱ ተተረከ]
በታሸ ብራና
በተሳለ ብዕር
በወርቅ-ቅብ ተፃፈ::
ኗሪ ነው የዋሁ
የግዜር በግ ተላላ
ለመቃብር… ድንጋይ
ለአስለቃሽ… ለሰልስት
ለንፍሮ… ሙታ’መት
[“ለስሙ” … “ለክብሩ”
ለቤቱ… ላገሩ
ለጭዱ… ለሣሩ
ለቅጠል… ላፈሩ]
ፍዳ የሚበላ!
