Olive, they call me
Appeasing, they say
Peaceful, they coin.

Environmentalists, you love me
Indigenous, you paint me
Boisterous, you chant my praise.

Loggers, you fell my brother and sisters
Saw millers, you grinded my father
Builders, you nailed my cousins.

Kalenjins, they use us for cleansing
They guard our existence
And curse our extinction.

Olive, Olive, I am proud
Brachial names, welcomed
Plant us, in millions.

Environmental day, our day
As others count pay day
We shall live, Olives!
