A Week Away in the *Bundu

A week away in the bundu ~

Heaven on Earth ~

Away from the DIS-ease

And DIS-order of CIVIL-isation,

The cultivation of sophistication

In nations, where evolution

Lags behind what man desires.

What was thought to be progress

Is, in fact, re-gression

And chemical compounds rule the way

In which our foods are grown ~

Animal and vegetable ~

DNA manipulated, cloned, all in the name

Of improvement; a few steps forward

And how many back? Gods in white coats

Seeking, questing what? Eternity?

*(the bundu)
(In South Africa and Zimbabwe) the wilds; a distant or wilderness region.

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!

  1. Indeed. When insects shun plants which were their natural food it is time to be very, very afraid of eating such foods oneself.

  3. “Progress” and “improvement” : frequently an awful misuse of language. For shame.
