Apartheid Shall End

web

Graveyard of ancestors lay

before my eyes

of black, yellow and perhaps

brown fellas buried

below the modern scrappers

their ghosts cry amid the throng

Apartheid survives

Black, yellow, and perhaps

brown fellas

I, too, share their fate and

destiny

walking among the dead

disinherited from my birth right

to live freely and fully

on this God-forsaken land

I should not wander again

on the forbidden streets of sins

where curse is thrashed

upon callous souls

Let the most awaiting day come

when they shall reap the fruit

of injustice upon which they sowed

Let them end up wailing and moaning

from the punishment of heavens

And apartheid shall end.

– Jacaranda Elf
