Shade Over Ankara-Requiem For Khashoggi by Makhanda Senzangakhona

Makhanda Senzangakhona | Nov 21st, 2018 | poetry | No Comments


Martyred and immortalised,
Your fierce pen
and mighty stance
made a kingdom quake.
When they turfed out your breath
In that stranglehold
They sought to stall and steal
Your soul
Your thought
Your voice.
Now your ghost stalks
The world’s conscience
And haunts their days.
