By Tikum Mbah Azonga

Every blessed was dark
Then suddenly the lights returned
Those without feet moved first
Then followed those with over laden gifts
In the end all others congregated on the Market Square
Nobles, notables, the aristocracy, the clergy and peasants
It didn`t matter that the governor`s daughter was absent.

What counted were the voters` lists
That`s why the governor hurried back to say
“Despite the darkness and the light
Let`s all, each and everyone in his or her own way
Go out and register massively
And give the president another seven year term!”
