Treasure Island

Niki Nicholas Nkuna

(1957/01/09 / BURGERSFORT (Leeufallei farm or Ga- Makwakwasi))

Farm owner


The farm owner saw appropriately that he needed many farm hands to work it
However he saw less or none of the many hands enjoying the harvest of the farm
Come harvest time, the reap was uppermost in his single mind
He’ll be rich there’s’ no doubt about it, he believes

Alas, the mahogany brown coloured corn covered the vast farm and beckoned
Thou hands shall reap what it has sown by the same might of yesterday and today
Thou hands shall feed the hungry throng with the same might of yesterday and today
Thou smile shall traverse from the tiller to the feeder

Therefore all will be happy and rich
Because of team till, team tender and team harvest

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
