not yet uhuru by Nkululeko Zondi

Nkululeko Zondi 11 November 2016 a poem a day challenge, poetry Comments Off on not yet uhuru by Nkululeko Zondi
categorical freedom
coupled with capitalism
is not freedom at all

so-called political autonomy
intertwined with poverty
is not a liberation attainment

willing seller, willing
buyer blatantly negates
economic independence

undermining socialism
and egalitarianism
alienates collective humanity

perhaps democracy is
another euphemism for
apartheid and imperialism

maybe caps is another
jargon for bantu education

it was pigmentation
now it’s classification

it is not yet uhuru
