Celebrate South Africa!


Rejoice!
The sun decided to shine
and you woke up in the world

Rejoice!
Good morning South Africa
My country of change
My country of hope

Rejoice!
Your house was not burgled last night
Your car was not stolen
Your dogs were not poisoned

Rejoice!
The Jacarandas are purple
and you can see them
against the clear blue sky

Rejoice!
You’re in South Africa
and last night you didn’t die…
