About notjeffery

Out the box but stuck...

Attention!

Attention all comrades!

We have lost sight of our cause and forgotten our history,

We lie with Mammon and dance with Baal

Our bellies look pregnant and our health is poor

 

Attention all comrades!

Our people are drowning in the Ocean of Poverty

But we float freely in the life boats of entitlement

Fishing for puppets and gambits to boost our fame

 

Attention all comrades!

Our fathers are sighing because we’ve forgotten their names

We remember them to forge false pride

But we never met them and are glad that they died

 

Attention all comrades!

The end is nigh!

Debt is mounting and tenders are our ineptitude

We sit rich, defensive, pot-bellied and happy

 

Attention all comrades!

We must change our ways – or the labels at least

The people are rousing and opening their eyes

Our end is near; we’re being eaten by our lies

I am writers block
I block the writer
I write the block
I am… BLOCKED


Maybe

I speak in every language – I am allusion
I profess to understand – I am illusion
I deny action through subversion – I am witless
I imply the choice to change – I am…
…you…


JULIUS!

I fail to celebrate your greatness
when your MORALS are as dirty as oil

I fail to feel united in your words
when they are as tainted as your VALUES

Zapiro. Julius Malema

I fail to feel a thing
when I listen to the tune that you sing

Tell me your name
revolution
On the wings of Malema or an Agent?
I’ve yet to find a host
Do you speak for the people?
yes
English, Afrikaans, Zulu, Xhosa, Sepedi, Sesotho?
whoever understands and heeds the call
You’re in the wrong queue

“I greet you all in the name of peace. Democracy and Freedom for all.” – Nelson Mandela, 11 Feb 1990


My Eternity Still

Today I fell into myself
It hurt, but only a little

I saw things that I had forgotten
I felt things I thought I could not

I saw a light within me
A light looking inside out

Today I fell into myself
To find that you are what I’ve been looking for


Thank you I do

My love is yours
Yours is my love
Is my love yours?

My peace is you
You is my peace
Is you my peace?

Your heart beats with mine
Beats your heart with mine
Your heart beats mine with…?

I love you always
Always I love you
You love I always?

I do…
