Photo: Nelson

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

Blow.
