Alem Hailu Gabre Kristos Poems
As I was walking through The streets of Addis With a mood very high, Out of a clear blue sky,
The bad boy mentality
Unless you prove a bad boy Many a girl could hurl you A broken toy Let alone your company to enjoy!
No Condom No Sex
Sex worker to a house wife(- ->) Entertain not for me hatred It is only for a daily bread
A sunflower soul
It is a mystery divine With a radiant face On par with a sunshine You dictate and govern
A 360 turn
The revolutionary ardent Bordering on a prophet For democracy's advent, Up on grabbing
With affectation Kind-hearted and cool Aid resources you pool To dole it out with a spoon
The Incident I Never Forget
To get a fresh air A night stroll would be fair, I thought And switching the TV
Don't be a sheep in a goat's age
A sheep and a goat once Got locked in a fracas "Off you go!
How Failed We?
You and I Similarly both Saw through love Life's worth.
God Could be Never Wrong
Indefatigable in her task Carrying her baby on the back A lactating mother often embark On fanning the ember
An Honest Despot
Donning a high flown robe of democracy, Hypocrites barefacedly tout autocracy! Alas, a snake in the grass!
A tight rope
All sides, when darkness me envelop Hopelessly, when unthinkable seems hope A chimera, when the abyss With saw-like teeth yawns
When you let Your paramour Eat me out of a room I rented in your heart
Love is not By fair means or foul Meeting ones end, But it is the negative good

As I was walking through
The streets of Addis
With a mood very high,
Out of a clear blue sky,
A spark ignited by a pair of
Rolling big fire balls,
Affixed on either side
Of a straight nose,
Like a thunder
Unknown that falls
Threw open my hearts doors.
The spark embedded in the embers
In my heart of hearts still lingers!
