I write what I feel…

Upside Down



When the world is turned upside down

And values stand on their head,

When corruption is condoned

And whistle-blowers victimised,

What hope is there for upright men

Who stand alone against this world’s insanity?

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! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

  5. Those who are not a part of the solution are a part of the problem. And then again from a certain perspective there is no separation.

    “Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.”


  6. Everyone who registers disapproval is part of the solution! So well done.


  7. I believe Thomas Jefferson said something to the effect of; ‘One man with conviction is a majority’
