Twas a dangerous cliff, as they freely confessed,
Though to walk near its crest was so pleasant;
But over its terrible edge there had slipped
A duke, and full many a peasant.
The people said something would have to be done,
But their projects did not at all tally.
Some said, "Put a fence 'round the edge of the cliff,"
Some, "An ambulance down in the valley."
The lament of the crowd was profound and was loud,
As their hearts overflowed with their pity;
But the cry for the ambulance carried the day
As it spread through the neighboring city.
A collection was made, to accumulate aid,
And the dwellers in highway and alley
Gave dollars or cents - not to furnish a fence -
But an ambulance down in the valley.
"For the cliff is all right if you're careful," they said;
"And if folks ever slip and are dropping,
It isn't the slipping that hurts them so much
As the shock down below - when they're stopping."
So for years (we have heard), as these mishaps occurred,
Quick forth would the rescuers sally,
To pick up the victims who fell from the cliff,
With the ambulance down in the valley.
Said one, to his peers, "It's a marvel to me
That you'd give so much greater attention
To repairing results than to curing the cause;
You had much better aim at prevention.
For the mischief, of course, should be stopped at its source,
Come, neighbors and friends, let us rally.
It is far better sense to rely on a fence
Than an ambulance down in the valley."
"He is wrong in his head," the majority said;
"He would end all our earnest endeavor.
He's a man who would shirk his responsible work,
But we will support it forever.
Aren't we picking up all, just as fast as they fall,
And giving them care liberally?
A superfluous fence is of no consequence,
If the ambulance works in the valley.
The story looks queer as we've written it here,
But things oft occur that are stranger;
More humane, we assert, than to succor the hurt
Is the plan of removing the danger,
The best possible course is to safeguard the source;
Attend to things rationally.
Yes, build up the fence and let us dispense
With the ambulance down in the valley.

Waste are unwanted or unusable materials. Waste is any substance which is discarded after primary use, or is worthless, defective and of no use
The Kisii Municipality, Kenya has always been plagued by the problem of garbage disposal.
Kisii towns one of the fastest growing towns located in one of the most densely populated counties in Kenya.
What you are seeing in the photos provided below is garbage on the the only damping place in town.Infact about 2 years ago they wanted to change the damping site to another place but they were met with angry residents to whom the information had leaked to by a good Samaritan about their ugly plans. Therefore, the whole city is littered with all sorts of garbage, including rotten foodstuffs, packaging materials, bones and dismantled building materials.
The World Health Organization has reported that the pathogens that exist within such waste can be linked to the following diseases:Parasitic infections,Meningitis,Skin infections,Candida,Bacteremia,Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C.
Pictures below are normal sites to some people and not to some.











While around these waste are big hospitals that are like ambulances wherein there are doctors waiting for patients to be sick for treatment.





Plus the government level six teaching and referral hospital

i pray that the spell under which our policy makers are in may be taken away.May they learn to prevent before they cure especially during this Covid dispensation thereby leaning to erect a fence over a cliff instead of ambulances at the bottom of the cliff for this is what is Logic.


Trash is always a problem, even if the trash is reduced by recycling.

Use the 'photography' tag, it will expose you to a wider group.

Stay blessed, sharing this post!
