Kovi 2020

Atuha Arnold 1996 (Kampala)



On the market
Kovi, kovi, kovi
The abnormal become the normal
The richest become the vulnerable
The strong become the weakest
Nights become the days
Shorts turn into longs

Kovi, kovi,kovi,
Words as food
Temples empty out
Institutions nothing
Movement apunishment
Stay home alaw
Closiness astigma

Kovi,kovi,kovi
Homes break, money hides
Mortality rises, birth rises
New life interests covers
Solitude ahobby
The new us
Kovi,kovi
END
