Genocide by Mihlali Songcaka

Poem

I don’t know how many
Awareness campaigns women of South Africa
Have done
But the man still turns a blind eye
And still, make themselves deaf
From the cry of our sisters and mothers

God’s gifts
Keep getting burnt
Shot
Raped
Molested
And many viler things
At the hands of this vile species

Men of South Africa left a lot of WhatsApp groups
Now
Fear
Has crept in
Now they can’t live their lives 
Because men of South Africa are on a rampage
To kill women
I fear for my two sisters
I fear for my mother
I fear for my cousins
I fear for my friends
I fear for women of South Africa because tomorrow seems like the last supper or maybe before midnight

#AM I NEXT
Is what lingers on women tongues
No women deserve this
No sin was made
But
we make their lives a sin
