I sold my home by Kitamirike Dan

It was the greater mistake of the ancestor
He made the gentleman be the voice of the people
The voice of God dipped in the chambers of a building
It was here that I saw my hope, the greater hope to make a difference

It was all but a lie, a better promise to build better roads
To bring the better of my nation to him! The man in the village:
“ yes, I will turn the flood dams into power dams”
Damned their minds, they sent me with the voice of God
The Voice my sentiments about the evils had to deliver

The delicacies of the Kyankwanzi turned me into a god
For the sins of my victory was the money that I had got
Not the jiggered feet that got me this 120 million car that I ride
For that man doesn’t know what he wants
Its my better view of issues that matter, the colour of my fellow men

And yes, I stooped in the sale of my home
For the people that want to see we the adults decide for their home is
Not for them to hear
I will get my hungry hounds to chase them away;-
