I am so much sressed,
There down town policemen are after me,
I have no even twenty shillings to take me back home from town,
Yet the policemen are demanding for a thousand shillings from me,
It was one chilly morning that I woke up so early in the morning when I left my family still asleep.
I was going to town to look for a job.
I had no any money and so I had to walk the long distance of hundreds kilometers on foot.
Unfortunately,evening reaches and fail to get employed due to social problems such as tribalism,racism,nepotism,corruption among others.
On my way home I meet a gang of thieves who rob me of my mobile phone.
Just a little distance ahead, I meet a young lady who bumps herself on me accusing me of having robbed her her mobile phone.
Suddenly, a mob comes and beats me up to an extend of breaking my four front teeth.
Luckily enough, I manage to escape narrowly.
Still on the run, I meet around twenty policemen who harass me by demanding a thousand shillings from me yet
I don't have even twenty shillings to board a vehicle and get home.So ironical...
I arrive at home very late in the night,around 11pm.
The family members are still awake,hopefully waiting for me to at least bring something home after having left them without any amount of money to spend during the day.Unfortunately,
I come home without money.The wife threatens to leave as she is faded up with such kind of life (POVERTY LIFE).
The song ends in suspense without solution to the problems...
