'Sounds of Silence' - SA style

14 November 2012, 23:13

 "THE SOUNDS OF VIOLENCE"
 
 Hello darkness my old friend
 You've come to rob me once again
 I hear your footsteps softly creeping
 Through my house as I lie sleeping
 And the brick you used to smash my windowpane Still remains
 Within in the sounds of sirens. (SOUND EFFECT OF SIREN)
 
 In restless streets I walked alone
 They stole my car I can't get home
 'Neath the halo of a old street lamp
 They grabbed my wallet by the AutoBank
 When I was stabbed by a gangster and a couple of his pals It split my
 skull
 I heard the sounds of sirens (SOUND EFFECTS OF POLICE SIREN)
 And in the naked light I saw
 Just one Konstabel not one more
 He shouted, "Freeze! This is the law speaking!"
 They broke his kakebeen without listening
 People running loose 'cause they been released on bail No place in jail
 Amidst the sounds of sirens (SOUND EFFECTS OF MIXTURES OF SIRENS)
 
 Why they do it I don't know
 Violence like a cancer grows
 Hear my words that I might teach you
 Take my T.V. and my radio
 But a life is a sacred thing my Bru
 It's given once...
 Don't let it echo... (GUNSHOT FOLLOWED BY SHRIEK)
 ....INTO SILENCE
 
 And in the naked light I saw
 A shadow moved across my door
 I walked quietly and klapped him once
 It was the Outjie from Armed Response
 Ag sorry,' I said as he fell down on his head
 My face was red
 Reflected in the Sounds of Sirens

ANC Adieu

A clearly debilitated ANC is limping along to 16 December, hoping for a miracle cure; something that would heal the suppurating sores on it’s mangy coat and save it from decaying into oblivion. Read more...

Third force behind The President'...

Politics is a knife that cuts into the Public every which way it can. Politics is the sociopath, the Public its willing victim. The Public needs to demand better instead of praising sensationalism, gossip and bias over logic and truth. Read more...
