The Rich Man Over There.

Speeding like a hare
jumping like a monkey
crawling like a tortoise
hopping like a frog
loitering like a cow
kicking like a donkey
galloping like a horse
moving like a cat
running like a dog
oh ! doing everything like animals
the man, another animal
but with reason
behaved antisocial
destroying all things
dismantling other things
debugging the lines
eavesdropping through the gap
peering through the keyhole
sneaking through the open door
hiding behind the cupboard
sniffing through the window
finally escaping through the court-yard
being images (26) a man tall and lanky
worser than all the animals quoted
behaving with shame and disdain
Well! he be the rich man over there


The Capture

The stream flows over
ebbing and etching out
with the fish climbing over
jumping and hopping out
while the birds come flying over
descending in a slow move all out
as the tide goes up and down
so do the fish go in and out
the birds look straight  down
trying to catch their bait out
attempting once or twice with a frown
they capture the fish all in a  slow down
with that done they fly into the clouds.

Mandela No More.

The world would remember Mandela

he being a  life-like Cinderella

who came from nowhere

saw the atrocities over there

fought for the rights  of his men ever hard

imprisoned for years together in a ward

not giving up hope or cheer

exercising his rapport with no fear,

braving the ignominy and  punishments

endured all with a smile and an adjustment

with his cause being in the forefront

strove for the uplifting of his people  not for stunt

he being  no fairy tale being like Cinderella

but made of blood and stuff  was Mandela

like the imaginary figure who crossed all metes and bounds

becoming a Princess of great charm and fame   as found

this legend emerged as a leader and a champion of the apartheid

getting  their rights and freedom with a gusto  and determination  in a deal.Nelson-Mandela1disney-cinderella-scarlett-johanson






The Other Side Of It

Living in a place where I am known

gives  a pain and a trial unknown

setting a very uneasy tone


Seeing someone who has done harm

tends to induce a disquieting  calm

that forces me to lose my charm.


Relocating at this part of life being hard

I have to  safely play the card

and move on in life with a big nod.
