The Government of the Republic by Nkululeko Zondi

Quaz | Apr 28th, 2021 | poetry | No Comments

Poem

the government of the ruling party
has stipulated the most progressive constitution
adapted from the freedom charter
and enforced by its most incompetent leaders,
under this legislative document,
they are adhering to nepotism,
corruption and misconduct and
the execution of the general public
through brutality and mass killings
through the military and the police department.
if you think all of this is untrue,
please name one sustainable state owned entity
and the innumerable prolonged commisions
in the land which are wasting the taxpayers
contributions which have already wasted.
