The Spear is blunt!

26 May 2012, 13:11

The Spear is blunt!


Another white rhino lies dead in the ground

its harmless hexed horn ripped from its head.

But there is no remorse or pity to be found

for this collateral damage, no tears will be shed.

An irate nation is gathering in numbers abound

not for an innocent life lost, but for a painting instead.


The president's private parts have been exposed

Oh no! What a tragedy, what pain, what shame

Damn that painter for such a racialist repose 

We must protest, someone must take blame.


In my country genitals deserve more protection than a life

Callous rapists, murders and poachers walk free

while a poignant painter gets the knife.
