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

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
