A FORTUNE THAT NEVER WAS - KCSE ENGLISH POETRY QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Read the following oral poem and answer the questions that follow.
After a brief struggle I got myself
My food was meat and banana
A hundred cents a month and
soon I had some money.
Soon afterwards I bought myself
A beautiful girl
My heart was telling time this
was a fortune
So heart you were deceiving
me and I believed you
On a Saturday morning as I was
I was thinking I was being
awaited at home
But on arrival I couldn’t find my bride
Nor was she in her parents home
I ran fast to the river valley;
What I saw gave me a shock.
There was my wife conversing
with her lovers.
I sat and silently wept.
I realized there is no luck in this world.
People aren’t trustworthy and
will never be!
