Read This Before You Leave SA

04 July 2012, 21:06

There once was a country, majestic and grand


Yet its people bickered and fought over land


There was plenty for everyone, but some wanted it all


So greedy were they, they did not heed the call


Then one day… as if foretold


Out of the woodwork rose a champion so bold


His name was Malema but they called him JuJu


Yet, to this day, some swear he was koo koo


At events and rallies he would work up the masses


Soon they all threatened to kick some white asses


Once nationalization paralyzed the nation


They demanded even more to complete the occasion


The ones who were able then boarded their flight


And left as their countrymen prepared for a fight


And those who remained searched high and searched low


But dejectedly found they had nowhere to go


It is 15 years later… and what was SA is now a crater


While we fought amongst ourselves, we got sold to the yellow elves


Now the Chinese are mining our beautiful land bare


And all we can do is weep and stare


They say we were negative, and we were at the time!


But when I think back, all we talked about was crime


Snap out of it SA… this poem is a prediction


It’s not yet too late to make SA great


Set a new course at the next election


And get rid of that man with the persistent erection


Or this I tell you whilst on my knees 


Start brushing up on your Cantonese

Bloodlust

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...
