Been gone
for a while
to page through my bible
to clear my bile

Am now back
to hack
like used to

Hope to cope
with illusions of changes
that will never be
because of men who never were

Been gone
for far too long
and now long
for home
for hope

To be immortalised
be the mainstay

Together We Can Do More

My muse and I have been in the study for a while now and since then things literary haven`t been the same - we are churning out one literary masterpiece after the other.

We surely are a winning team.

Good old William Shakespeare and other griots should be a huge flame ball of envy in the face of the classics we are releasing to a discerning audience.

With the going at this rate there can be no looking back or parting of ways between my muse and I. The only parting we can settle for is the parting of the waters of an occean to allow ease of passage.

On April 2009 my beloved country held an election for provincial and national legislators. To make it easy for patriots and other civic-minded South Africans the president declared the day a public holiday.
As it has been the case since our first democratic elections in 1994 I was at hand to do my patriotic bit by voting and encouraging many others to do the same.
Patriots and the civic-minded look forward to our brand new legislators being men and women of honour, true to their words.
The coming five years will reveal whether our faith in them was correct or not.

Quite a while...

Been away for quite a while, since last October to be precise. Am not sure whether to be blame it on my muse for having had been on an extended holiday or better still to own up to it all for having had abandoned my muse.

Questions, questions, questions and even more questions! Where are the answers - will there ever be answers?

Let`s leave these many questions with no answers for a while to simmer or even cool down a bit. Who knows, these many questions may perchance answer themselves!

Sparing us the pain and toil of seaching for answers.

Let me settle for the fact that I have been reunited with my muse and that together we can do much more for the good of all.

pain in vain

life of pain
amidst plenty
for a few others
little or none
for many
ours is a life
away from the hive
of economic activity
of getting rich with no sweat
the fruits of our hard-won freedom
is all pain
as though all was in vain
and I was born for the drain
where their excesses are dumped

cry rage
get out of the cage
of mind-control
lest you miss the call
the cry
of voices suppressed
of the free unfree
cry rage
and start another page
of minds freed from chainage

now that you are gone

time was
when we were together
siamese twins only death could separate
that was then
genesis before exodus
that rent us asunder
left us bleeding
gone now
am left alone
a void never to be filled
i stare into space
before me scary emptiness
that neither time nor space
can fill
life has lost colour
and feeling
