Musa Ndhlovu

(1994 April 04 / SOUTH AFRICA MPUMALANGA)

Africa


My land Africa.
My home Africa.
My place of birth Africa.
Loved by A, Amateur, Against and Anger are the south Africans.
The place of B, Bravado, Botchand Burren is South Africa.
The land of C, Criticism, Crime and Corruption is in South Africa.
Loved by D, Danger, Drugs and Dirt is loved by South Africans.
I robbe a bank. 'It's a bussnes man.'
I kill a woman. 'It's her child.'
I excape a case. 'It's a bribe.'
The people sported a bussnes man a child and a bribe.
'Oh land-line news! ' No truth is yet to come.
Maybe A is for Anger or B for Bravado nor C for Criticism
More like D for Danger. What is it for?
Perheps A, B, C, D is the next altrication.
'Oh dear South Africa! ' You cannot sight A, B, C, D bt majority.
You cannot compare hance A, B, C, D with W, X, Y, Z which
Is Worth, Xerophyte, Yield and Zealous.
My underpants being dregged down,
My privet part exposed.
The pride I get from my clouths, stolen.
Is this the new South Africa?
Is this the new rainbow nation of South Africa?
Their intaligence and talent are worthless, but I say with pride.
My land Africa.
My home Africa.
My place of birth Africa.

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
