For Mike Chidiso

Sometimes life is unfair
But we just have to accept
That everything cannot be fair
Only He has power to moderate

You called me
Some minutes ago
Minutes into hours
Then hours into a day

You called me
Few days ago
Asking me about my home
You went to see my mom

On the phone, you asked me
“Do you know me?”
“Are you not surprised that I got your number?”
“What’s a way home from the depot?”

Some minutes ago
My brother called me
Probably your friend
Telling me of your fate

“He was coming from Rumphi
Their vehicle crashed
Only he and two others died”
So, that was your farewell.
