Rainbow Nation?

03 February 2014, 15:08

‘Just the place for a racist!’ our President cried,

As looked at the DA with care;

Supported by kissers of bums on his side

And a finger stuck up in the air.

‘Just the place for a racist! I have said it twice:

That alone is enough to be true.

When I look at those t-shirts, all blue and not nice:

Only black, green and yellow will do.’

The crew was complete: they were true to their roots

They were brokers of tenders, and hoods

A businessman come to dispel their disputes

To placate them and value their goods.

A President here with an ego immense,

Who most surely had more than his share

In a house that was built at enormous expense,

And his many wives all in his care.

There was also a country, now surely a wreck,

Only fit for the likes of a sow:

And when Thuli attempted to keep them in check,

She was labelled a traitorous cow.

Here was one who was famed for the number of things

He forgot when attempting a speech:

And the MPs were roused from their long slumberings,

When his stumbling efforts did reach.

To the ANC benches, all carefully packed,

With faithfully loyal who each

Stamped their feet and made certain the odds were all stacked,

In their favour and clapped for the speech .

The loss of his dignity was but a small price

To pay for the chance to be boss,

And the lies were so blatant, that all of his vice

Was considered to be a small loss.

He would answer to ‘Hau wena!’ or to any loud cry,

Such as ‘Bring my machine-gun right now!’

To all who would question his duty to lie

To defend himself any old how

While he had Rat McCrawley confirming his word,

That they would rule till Jesus came:

The voters believed him and swore that they heard

The ancestors say much of the same

His form is ungainly—his intellect small—

But he is who the voters elected

And they are the ones, be they long, short or tall

Who are breaking down what was erected

He would joke with the people and dance like a goon

And pretend that the boos were not there

And he gambolled and danced like a hairless baboon

And then in all earnest declare

That the ANC would create six million jobs

And corruption was out, on its way

The police had MacBride-cake—at which there were sobs,

For the crooks had a new boss that day.

So remember Nkandla, remember the dead

Who were killed cause their taps had run dry

And remember the promises all made ahead

Of the last election and then ask why.

He should change what has worked for him up to this point,

When the laws could be changed at a whim,

When the press could be silenced, and put out of joint

And would have to go out on a limb

To speak of the truth and expose all the lies,

And to show that it all is a shame;

And that all of the President’s halting replies,

Are repeats and incredibly lame

So you now have your chance to affect what you want,

When you enter that booth on that day,

You alone have the ‘X’ and let none say you can’t

Vote, cause you alone have the last say

If you vote for the black, green and yellow again

You will cry and lament and then scream

But here is the chance, when you pick up your pen

To remove them and realise your dream

This man had a mother. A father. He was perhaps a brother, a friend, a lover. This man had a purpose. He had a dream. He had a life. He had laughter and love and hope waiting for him. Read more...

Many conclude that Yemen is yet another step towards the cataclysmic sectarian war and , quite possibly, the trigger that leads the region to this ultimate battle. I, for one, can find no reason not to hold a similar position. Read more...
