The Colourful Calabar

This young humble man
Formerly known as Angoloma
Little known utility footballer
Before he came to Gor Mahia
Can play at right-back or left-back
Defensive midfield or even centre-back
And always overlaps to help attack

Acquired from Karuturi Sport
He will soon be an export
His name is David Owino
He is no longer a minnow
But in the league of big fish
Causing strikers anguish

When Kenya played in Calabar
That’s when people saw that star
Stopping Victor Moses and Ahmed Musa
He was not a cowardly loser
Nigeria faced our own Calabar
Kenyan colourful defender

In the World Cup qualifiers
Kenya scored only one goal at home
A goal by the colourful Calabar
In Awendo he struck the crossbar
The referee said it was a goal
Three points though controversial

And who can forget that equaliser?
The one against AFC Leopards?
Goals in Mumias and Mbaraki
That penalty winner in GOTV
Goals in both club and country colours
From the colourful Calabar
Headers, shots hitting the bar
This lad is going far

This colourful Calabar
