sealing for silence by Diliza L Madikiza

Poem

Sealing for silence
The bones are rumbling inside dark chambers
Residing in shelters you cannot see
Itching to mouth off misdemeanours of the past
But skeletons cannot be fleshed out to tell truths
So dark cabinets must be tightly sealed
And concealed by what law which has a license to seal?
