The Voter

Dawn
Freezing cold
A yawn and off the bed
First in line
Its 4 a.m Tuesday
He had waited for this moment
Mirthfully
He chatted with his friends - rubbing his hands
A bit of warmth needed
Rukia was up as well - she sold hot tangawizi and coffee
As they waited for the centre to be opened - at 8:00 a.m
The coffee made him awake till then
Throngs of people began to gather at the registration centre
But he was first in line
Ecstasy - As he got in and filled the forms
Biometric Voter Registered - Lolz
A voter ID was in his hand
Change was in his hand
