2 Prince, Another One I Wrote


Murder is losing its mind, I am losing my patience

Chris Hani was murdered on 10 April
Political reasons are speculations
Speculation is a political reason
An African political prince
Was butched motive is mysterious
The brutal murder is a fatal error

This world is unjust
The land I see was sad
And the soil I walk in felt the pain

Lucky Dube was murdered on 19 October
An African prince of reggae was assassinated

Political reasons are speculations
Speculation is a political reason
Still the cause murder is baffling
Butchered for the love of the nation
And passion for country men

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
