Dear Mr President


Dear Mr President,

My Reason For This Sad Lament

Is Yet Another Incident

Of Cruel And Murderous Intent

While Blood Of Victims Innocent

Drowns Rainbow Hopes In Crimson Taint

And Leaves Our Nation Impotent

To Be The Best This Continent

Proudly Chose To Represent:

as “Ma’ Africa’s Supreme Descent”.

~ ~ ~

But Still Mr President

Though I Aim To Remain Confident

Regrettably I’m Hesitant

When It’s Pitifully Evident

That Too Often An Inhabitant

Learns To Be Disobedient

Blames Someone Else Incompetent

Or Deems It Quite Convenient

To Prove That Being Deficient

Is Rationale Sufficient –

To Steal Or Rape Or To Torment

Without A Morsel Of Repent

When Striking For A Dividend

When Healing Hands Turn Militant

When Teaching’s Main Ingredient

Is : ‘How To Shame Your Government’

When Dread Transmits A Deathening Scent

And Neither Beast Nor Man Can Vent

Their Fear That Life In This Fine Land

Is Worth Less Than A Hard-Earned Rand

Now SOMEONE Has To Comprehend

That ‘Freedom’ Is A Free Event

That Life For Each Is Heaven-Sent

And Death Is Merely Life’s Contempt

That Seemingly Staying Tolerant

Does Not Wash Blood Off Your Own Hand

~ ~ ~

Will You Be The First, Mr President?

To Make An End To This Sad Impend

For Death Kept Unvoiced, Silent

Is Death Endured Twice Violent

😦
