WORD DOWN THE LINE

20 years in

Centuries down the line

The poets are hurting

 

The dreams’ corruption

Screams in the night and

The seams come apart in

Bill of Rights & Constitution

They hymen an apparition

 

Blac publishing    radic nourishing

To Cry Rage    in the Lie-Age

of pain’s lineage

Shame is the Blacker hues

Makhafula up to James Matthews

 

If I could sing

Daar’s kak in die land

(tune from the claws of satan

strummed behind the doors of parliament)

blood-tide rises with slaughter-current

 

march of the blackstorm

from no sanctuary in freedom

minds’ Molotov explosion

all the insurrection way back home

 

blood-splutter paint

on the cracked walls of the cranium

megawatts in the AMANDLA name

for the power-game

but) who’ll pay the bill of reparation

when what was stolen

is that which is Human

ridden from here to a mine-dump

 

the Richter registration

  1. of) worker ants & termites

marching on feet that are broken-

scales of justice

& peace hanging in the balance

of a snapped brainstem

democracy-scam

celebration of a sham

& THAT is my WORD down the LINE
