Cry

My beloved country

The backlash held in place

Has been let loose

The floodgate opened wide

As the frenzied tumult smiles

And rage has set the stage

A country polarised

Emotion rules the nation

A shower head, a laughing stock

A president, a precedent

Weep

While the world’s asleep

Judgement day will come again

And the cross will be our shame

Cry

My beloved country

Cry

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. There is a lot of heart in this, for your country and the way that you see it turning. Much the same could be said here for the states. But then again we will all have to face that day of judgement one day, and the cross will stand above it all. I wonder how many will be shocked when it happens.
