Like being sent to
Frolic around masked men
To consummate sin, ‘devil’s work’
vice to God’s tongue,
As barren as moonshine,
Cynical like bible scriptures
Like cynical moonshine.
As barren as God’s tongue to vice?
Work devil’s sin,
Consummate to men
Masked, around to sent being-like
Sibulelo Manamatela is a great lover of text; whether it be a novel, play, and even music lyrics. She finds it apt to express herself and her narrative in poetry.
