Cut to Size

By Ndaba Sibanda

Cut To Size

he -- Mthethwa -- would not leave a stone
of sham and shame sheltered by another

he held a powerful pen that spat out
scalding reddish ink in the face of bias

his words were saltier than intense venom
for they unleashed a very volcanic thunder

which tore apart the vile core of venality
transformed their blindness into alertness

galvanized their laziness into throughput
ripped apart their culture of one-sidedness

burnt to ashes were the bums of the felons
cut short were the bristly tails of arrogance
