Poem

To Whom It May Concern :

As the summer rains pelt on the ground so does our grandmothers tears, for their loincloths like mice, have fallen in deadly snares. Our mothers weep, frequently, for their husbands have paid more visits to shebeens than their homes.
Innocent treasures are buried in bins.
The promise of the brilliant child’s future was short-circuited.
Monsters, co-existing in our rooms
The sight of a developing country :
unemployment, uncertain, unaware is gruesome.
We are a catastrophic spectacle to neighbours.

When we address our cries, you come by providing a temporary remedy to shut us up

I have held on to my faith , but my distress has forced me to let go
