The magical drum stick

18 December 2011, 09:14

Man can’t begin to fathom the powers of chicken…But is it fowl play to exploit its powers to control an entire race of people?

South Africa has seen several violent protests in recent years, most of which are fueled by poor service delivery. Violent demonstrations are not a strange phenomenon; they’re as common as corruption within government or as common as the word common in common situations. But who would have thought that with just one mere wave of a magical drum stick can bring civil unrest to a standstill.

But how can a simple bucket of chicken massage a very tense beast into submission, what ingredients in the chicken is making our black youth so vulnerable to misguided political influence? Should we opt in giving them Labradors and walking sticks instead of education? Why are the youth of today so blind, to see beyond a chicken – are they victims of “fowl” play or is it just plain stupidity. They call themselves economic fighters but the army already lost the Woodwork battle during the Pinocchio renaissance.  Hopefully with some miracle they can one day walk independently without Labradors and walking sticks…Intelligence will enable them to see the light. If they fail to grasp change – than birds of the same feather will always flock together.
