Sara Basrai - I saw Obama become President, Idi Amin


Uganda, Uganda, what did I do wrong?

Land of fruit and lush vegetation

Waiting for the train to come

Walking on the rails that my father made strong


Idi Amin told me to leave

Good bye fresh oranges from trees

The steam has long gone

I wonder who walks on those lines now as I grieve

Taken by bus to the airport, nothing in hand

Why Idi didn't you like my kind?

All I did was to work hard

And pray and tread happily through warm, silky sand

My destination the United Kingdom

I walk silently, softly through my new land

Once a great colonial power,

The home of Shakespeare, on the edge of Christendom


Idi why did you send me away?

They don't want me here

But I will work hard again, let me pray

In my prayer room in Leicester, alone with the fears of yesterday.


But now we return to Kampala

Our journey has been long

We're older now

The Indian Ocean will hear our song

I stand on the shore looking to India

At the dhouws that bought us

But we're older now

I sigh and will make no fuss

I've made a home in England

So though I see the fruit trees

We're older now

I've grandchildren there to please

England has changed us, Idi Amin

My grandchildren are mixed-race

We're older now

Life moves at a slower pace


I watched Obama become president yesterday

What Idi Amin, does your ghost have to say?

We're older now

But I see the promise of a better world


So I will take India, Uganda, England and America

And any other land

And mix them within me today

What Idi Amin, does your ghost have to say?
