Poetry of the powerless

Candle

This power cut is ‘general’
Whole neighbourhoods are out
Transformers at Mulago
Burned sometime last night

This power cut is ‘general’
They say it could last days
Another night by candlelight
As batteries flash and fade

Most stuff works as normal
No fridge to worry about
But modern stuff like laptops
Will soon be obsolete
