I have an image of Nelson Mandela on my wall
And it makes me do outrageous things
Inspired by his one kind hearted way
Of being of use to the world.
It is a book of longing for I did not meet him
I afraid I am.
For he does not protect me anymore
From the skuld and donder of veld-life
And so it goes that it is about to
