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.

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.
