Inspiration for this Scary Poem: Mombasa Town and A Mysterious Art Piece
This scary ghost poem was inspired by a metal art work piece I did of a woman with a veiled face. There was something haunting and mysterious about the art piece. I come from Kenya and Mombasa is one of Kenya's oldest towns. It is a popular tourist destination with beautiful beaches and ancient buildings including Fort Jesus. Old town Mombasa is a section of Mombasa with ancient buildings, narrow streets and curio shops. There are plenty of ghost stories about Mombasa and Fort Jesus. Many of the stories are about genies and how they disguise themselves as cats and beautiful women and wreak all sorts of mischief on humans. There are also stories about witchcraft the supernatural and how some Mombasa residents keep genies for all sorts of purposes. When I was younger we frequently went to Mombasa on holiday and even though we were staying in some of the best hotels I was always petrified when I found a cat outside my room. I was also scared of been in the hotel room on my own. Yes I confess I am a coward, but don't let my stories scare you off, Mombasa is a beautiful town full of history, culture and sandy beaches so come visit some day.

Scary Poem by Injete Chesoni: Mystery in Old Town Mombasa
She had an air of mystery about her
as she sat in the window and stared
I was walking in Old Town Mombasa
and I remembered what they said
That ghosts haunt this town
and things are not always what they seem
There are genies dressed up as cats
and men in women’s bui-buis
So I stared in her eyes and scurried
Even as my mind paused to think
Was she really a woman in clothing
Or a supernatural being
