STORM COMING African tribal violence

Storm coming, madam

Note: Political unrest near Nairobi, Kenya due to election strategiesPolish nun told me that she was warned by a local moonshine runner to hideToo lateShe was pistol whipped by local police who wanted more protection moneyDidn’t get the money (it was a free clinic, so nurses had no money) Police beat the nurse/nuns and absconded with the very rare and precious AIDS meds to sell to the hospitals.Free AIDS clinic was forced to close.(Kenyan government does not have free health care for the poor)   Nuns are recovering then being transferred to other clinicsThree went back to Europe forced into early medical retirement due to permanent injuries sustained by police and/lootersThe care program(education and/or placement) for the children whose parents were AIDS patients is goneChildren have taken to the streets in desperation Count your blessings.

old Smeaton's Tower

old Smeaton’s Tower
spends its retirement dreaming
recalling its youth

no light in its eyes
glares at the young usurper
on Eddystone reef
