A great ruler: King Sekhukhune


May I call you, a king? a chief?
A leader or a ruler
Well doesn't reverberates a honour

Decedents of your roots
Admire your labor and honor your victorias

Tribalists
Undermine your tribe
Racists
Isolate your race in your territory

they named it Transvaal
Sons and daughters divided it
Gauteng, Limpopo and Mpumalanga
a land of a man
Have you move around it and see its beauty

On top
Of this mountain
I see your image[statue]
We live under your shadow
The great king
And a ruler

Your land is wealthy
We are heirs
I salute your Afro-centric and Africanism
Your dedication to freedom
The great king
And the paramount chief

Imagine image of a king remember Transvaal
Gauteng, Limpopo and Mpumalanga
The land of great king
And paramount chief

I salute you today

Poem of the Day

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
