it has come to that time where we have to face our fears.
We know you might be on your way to Heaven’s portal
We kind of believed you are immortal.
Silly to assume this, old Black Pimpernel
But all I can do is wish well
You have served this country with passion, sacrifice, forgiveness and grace
even when you were left with bitterness in your mouth to taste
I thank you Tatu Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela
as I wage my body weight on my patella
I pray to God to bless you and your descendants
You were our voice, our key, an unworthy defendant!
