Clothes and plates are scattered everywhere
The dishes in the sink haven’t seen water for days now
Lack of transport money makes
Me trek on the hot tarmac

Barefoot, looking for something to eat

At the end of the day, I get nothing
The boss at the construction site
Said there’s no job
Come back next week
I ended up begging for food
On the streets of Nairobi

Life can be so cruel at times
Went back to my shack
Found it already demolished
By the government…
I ended up spending the night
In the cold streets
