Yearning For Liberty

Poem By Jabulani Mzinyathi

we created frankenstein
some actively made the parts
in your graves do you hear me
others chose to be in deathly silence
when they could speak out loudly

frankenstein then started the rampage
devouring mothers, children and fathers
devouring his creators without mercy
a web of fear spread
there frankenstein thrived

frankenstein must now be chained
the ghosts of the past must be exorcised
the time for deafening silence is up
to smithereens we blow frankenstein
the nation must now sing and dance

mine will be the discordant voice
hold you by the scruff of the neck
repeatedly shaking the conscience
