Fools Of Social Cohesion - Poem by Anele TheAfrikanSon kaMthethungqongqo Potelwa

Cohesion with no vision
As we went on to fool ourselves
We lay upon the eyes of enemies
Feeding each one with fantasy
Then we named it social cohesion

We distriminated against religion
Hoping to centralise a region
We exploited upon the hybrid races
Hoping to wear an identical uniform

Cohesion with no vision
Thats what i call it because it has no mission
If you insist, will it ever crucify poverty?
Will it ever do away with crime and fraud?

    Quandary surrounds our world today...in virtually every political, cultural and economic arena...Visionaries, and or they who have vision and follow their idea through for the better of societel interests are few and far between.We have become an avaricious and mercurial people...asocial and self-reveling...Your well delivered verse above ostensibly concurs this claim...Enjoyed the read...Fluid structural movement throughout...~FjR (Report) Reply
