Fraud and Corruption

Fraud and Corruption

Rot is rife in the corridors of power
From the hallowed halls of parliament
To the municipal offices –
Fingers in the cookie jars of public funds,
Stealing from the poor, deprived and ravenous.
SCOPA is aware but no action has been taken.
Comrades from the past
Are loyal in the present.
Will they ever recognise that that was in the struggle,
And now the struggle’s over they’re accomplices to crime,
Breaking the laws they are supposed to uphold.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people!
