Nelson Mandela - a tribute


There was a place once for blacks and whites
And the coloured ones between the left and right
And for humanity it was the darkest of nights
Till Mandela came along to lead the fight

Solve he did a problem that was just skin deep
And proved that brute might can never win
That the human spirit can long endure and prevail
And apartheid can be consigned to history's dustbin....

    Mandela did some nice things, and said some sweet quotes. But if you do your research, the guy was a wacko - a murderer. (Report) Reply

    He proved, a man's worth is not skin deep
    All oppression and prejudice, he longed to sweep
    Beyond all gloom, to a brighter morn, he could peep
    Invoked the dormant spirits of his brethren to rise up from their sleep!

    Nelson Mandela, was one of the greatest souls of this generation! A befitting tribute to him! ! (Report) Reply

poet Sir Thomas Wyatt

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
