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

Bumper Bash

.

Crawling like a shongololo*

Nose to tail in traffic snarl,

A to B, lands on C,

Mish-mash, car crash,

Bumper bash.

Backseat children start to cry,

‘Okay, okay, keep calm,’ say I,

‘Dry your eyes, we’re all okay,

We’ll brave the crowds another day.’
