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,
No Condom No Sex
Sex worker to a house wife(- ->) Entertain not for me hatred It is only for a daily bread
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!
To the natural course preposterous As a brook upstream that gushes, To self-consciousness averse, I shake me hands
Back to square one
That ethnic group, A tyrant, Was not a democrat!
Come to Ethiopia
If nostalgia beset your mind Come to Ethiopia A cradle of mankind!
How Failed We?
You and I Similarly both Saw through love Life's worth.
It is good giving emphasis To concrete jungles And infrastructural development, But first leaders must learn to cut
The Independence Tree
Like sands that ride a wind Bullets all over strewed, Dismembered limbs, Soil mixed blood pools,
Blue Nile echo from shore to shore, "Poverty in Ethiopia is no more! " Above all,
Love is not By fair means or foul Meeting ones end, But it is the negative good
Home, when I repair The day's drudgery Rolled over 'Hurrah,
The flouted wealth
Wondering our dream Comes true when Every muscle we strain Also unturned
Why my dear When laid I my eyes On you first, Heart mine

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!
