Fearing a Darkness Without Leopards

By Ndaba Sibanda

She would never ever feel foreign
For she hoped to rise and reign
Taking on one maniac after another
She fought nobly as a true mother

Her parents had settled in the land
And crowned it their beloved sand
They had faced naked discrimination
Which only served to be her inspiration

Her husband was a son of an immigrant
He always felt people were malignant
He had an abnormal and irrational fear
That saw him carry a hidden light spear
