I write what I feel…


Copy Cats (a rap poem)


Copy cats emulate
dancing jubilation
holding you in high regard
showing approbation
idolise, venerate
muddy feet of clay
confusticate your nemesis
a favour to repay
exposed at last
disclosed, unmasked
trapped like a rat
living on the fat
dripping off the roast
and having the most
power in the land
or so we understand…

leaders are needed

to lead from the front

doing their best for all mankind

but money is power

and power is god

calling the shots

and telling what’s what

promoting relations

and friends to the top

crony-ism thrives

there’s (dis)honour among thieves

elections are due

to be held next year

and will changes occur

in the voting majority

or will they follow the leader

like sheep to the slaughter

it remains to be seen

if the mass has matured

and is aware of the position

but really don’t care…

Subtle Changes


Oft times we are too close to see

The making or changing of history.

The forest is made up of too many trees

Blocking the view of anything new.


The implications and variations,

Said to be pure as the driven snow,

Are often disguised from enquiring eyes

And hidden in layers and layers of lies.

Local Elections

Local Elections

Corruption is holding the reins
Demonstrations take place every day
If the situation stays the same
You have only yourself to blame

Emotions are running high
Lack of service is the cry
Empty promises and lies
Jobs by the thousands you’d supply

Loyalty must pay the price
Withholding your vote will not suffice
You need to demonstrate your rage
By using your vote to make a change
