WHY I SUPPORT AND CELEBRAE THE THE SOMALI NATIONAL CAUSE OF PEACE

 

BY MOHAMUD SIAD TOGANE 
togane@earthlink.net
 
 
Friends, Somalis, countrymen,
Lend me your ears
 
I come
to praise 
 
THE SOMALI NATIONAL CAUSE OF PEACE
The Arta Somali Peace Process
 
Not to bury it
 
I come
to bury the Evil we Somalis have done to each other
 
I come
to resuscitate and cultivate the Good we Somalis can do to each other
 
Before my bones are interred
I want
to celebrate and sing:
 
"Behold,
how good
and
how pleasant
it is
for Somali brethren to dwell together
in peace
in unity!"
 
 
I pray and I dream
to celebrate and sing
before my bones are interred:
 
"Behold,
how good
and
how pleasant
it is
to see
 
Mercy and Truth meet together
and hold hands
in downtown Mogadishu;
 
Righteousness and Peace kiss each other
in downtown Mogadishu!"
 
I pray and I dream
to celebrate and sing
before my bones are interred:
 
"Behold,
Weeping may endure for a night
but joy cometh in the morning.
 
Thank God Almighty
 
it is morning again
Homeboy
 
it is morning again
in our Motherland
 
IT IS MORNING AGAIN
in Somalia! "
 
As long as
Galayr and Qaasim
promote and advance and cherish and push
 
this noble dream of peace
this noble vision
 
of life
of laughter
of light
of love
of hope
of all of the Somali people
for all of the Somali people
 
as long as
Galayrd and Qaasim
 
keep
 
this faith
this hope
this dream
this vision
this love
this promise of Peace
 
Allah Almighty GOD
will be
 
their rock
their salvation;
 
He will be
 
their defence;
 
they shall not be
moved
Nor
removed!
 
as long as they eschew Evil
 
and do Good
and seek Peace
and sue for Peace
and ensue Peace.
 
That is why I support
Galayr and Qaasim
 
CONDITIONALLY:
 
On the condition that
they deliver on
 
this dream
this hope
this faith
 
this light
this love
 
this vision
this promise of peace
 
in our time
in our country
 
I am not the mother of
Galayrd and Qaasim
 
nor is Josh
 
though sometimes
many of us wonder
and believe that
 
Josh thinks he is!:
 
Only a mother loves 
 
UNCONDITIONALLY!
 
That is why we Abgaalis say:
 
"Habaru Xaarkay dhashay
Xaayow tiraa!:"
 
Every fond mother hymns hosannas
over the turd she had turned out!
 
...........................
 
It is one year ago
since
THE SOMALI NATIONAL CAUSE OF PEACE
The Arta Somali Peace Process
was born
and
STILL
Qaasim's clansmen are busy
colonizing and enslaving our fellow Somalis
in Somalia's breadbasket regions:
 
THIS IS UNCONSCIONABLE AND MUST STOP NOW!
 
"Qaasim,
Either shit
or
get off the pot!":
 
Either rein in your 'Air kinsmen
or
resign from presiding over
The SOMALI NATIONAL CAUSE OF PEACE
The Arta Somali Peace Process
which you and your AGNATES
 
have dishonored
have disgraced for over a year.
 
Qaasim
THE SOMALI NATIONAL CAUSE OF PEACE
The Arta Somali Peace Process
is based upon
 
principles
NOT
personalities
 
however august they may fancy themselves to be.
 
In Arta, Djibouti,
a year ago
Somalis who love and cherish peace for all the Somali people  
 
had gathered together
from the four corners of the world
had reasoned together
had wept together
had laughed together
had prayed together
 
And Allah who planted the ear heard them
And Allah who formed the eye saw them
and Allah who is merciful had joined them in their struggle
 
to cut the Gordian knot 
TO LEAD SOMALIA OUT OF THE BONDAGE OF WANNABE AFWAYNES
WHO WERE HOLDING SOMALIA HOSTAGE
TO THEIR PETTY PUTRID PERSONAL
SORDID SILLY STERN AMBITIONS OF FERRO E FUOCO.
 
Out of that triumph
The Somali National Cause of Peace
known as
The Arta Somali Peace Process
was born
 
That is why I support and celebrate
THE SOMALI NATIONAL CAUSE OF PEACE
The Arta Somali Peace process
 
It was AN EXIT
 
out of the analysis of the paralysis of crazy clanism 
out of our national nightmare
out of our national shame
out of our national despair
out of our national disgrace
out of our national degradation
out of the ignorance
out of the arrogance of fancy fatude 
 
It was AN EXIT
 
OUT OF DISGRACE TO AMAZING GRACE!
 
It was AN EXIT
 
out of the manacled mind set of
 
NO
 
out of the damned doldrums of
 
NO
 
to the resounding success of
 
YES 
 
to the reverberating "God's excess" of
 
YES 
 
Galayrd and Qaasim
we, the Somali people,
will not allow you
to snatch defeat out of the jaws of that noble victory at Arta!
 
Time and tide wait for no man!
Time and tide are not on your side!
 
One third of your time is done gone!
One third of your mandate from heaven is already over!
 
And your enemies
and the enemies of Peace
say
all you have done
UP TO THIS MINUTE
is
 
SWEET BUGGER ALL!
SWEET FUCK ALL!
 
I don't concur with that
 
I believe that
there is no Somali
born of a woman
 
more charismatic than Galayrd
 
a sophisticated citizen of the world
 
half Harvard
half Harti
 
a man favored and marked
 
by Fortuna
by Baraka
by good Karma
 
equally at home
in Los Angeles
as
in Las Anod
 
there is no Somali
born of a woman
 
more blessed than Galayrd
more qualified than Galayrd
 
to lead our Somali nation at this hour of maximum danger.
 
Ali,
The only reason
I had been
 
so rude
so crude
 
so tough
so rough
 
so relentless
 
in inveighing against you
a season or so ago
is that
 
Ali,
 
"For unto whomsoever
much is given,
of him shall be much and many miracles required:
and to whom men have committed much,
of him they will ask the more."
 
ALI
WE SOMALIS EXPECT MIRACLES FROM YOU!
 
You have my support and my prayers
You have the support and the prayers
and the goodwill of every decent Somali
WHO LOVES HIS PEOPLE AND PATRIA
as long as
 
you seek Peace
you sue for Peace
you ensue Peace
 
So Galayd and Qaasim
 
Stop dillydallying
Stop willywalling
Stop shillyshallying
 
Remember:
 
" There is a tide in the affairs of men,
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries."  
 
SO WHAT ARE YOU TWO WAITING FOR?!
 
Nin lagu sayxdow
Ha sayxan!:
 
O you
 
on whose steadfastness & vigilance we bank on
on whose faithfulness & fortitude we all go to bed
 
do not fall asleep
 
do not slumber
do not stumble
 
do not be caught
 
in the land of NO
in the land of NOD
 
napping
 
snoring
slobbering
 
on this noble national Somali Dream!
