IT’S NOT TOO FAR
It’s not too far, say I
Until the next regime comes in
And then another and then a next
But each will drift further from the truth, that is,
That it is for the ennobled one to hold power
And here it is said that it should be.
The one who holds favour with the public?
No, say I, for it is the one who shares the power
Who holds back the wealth
And therefore say I it should be the one who holds forth with
The bitterest smile and retort who should be the one.
And this is Winnie Mandela Senior, not Junior, for she is not a child
And should come to the fruit of the decision within
The next 48 hours or so.
Then we shall see how the public will last as she
Breaks all the bonds that have been put upon her
Through power hungry sharing models that do not
Relinquish those who need freeing
That is the women of the mob.
