A Tale of Abuses and Lies and Ruins

By Ndaba Sibanda

A Tale Of Abuses And Lies And Ruins

When lying is pathological and pathetic
Redemption is an inaccessible destination
See a sick party of Ananiases and Sapphiras!
When the sanctity of life is an unsung song
Whilst repression runs hell-ward on the guitar
And women are raped by security personnel
Detect the odor of disorder and damage there!
When citizens are sacrificed and sliced into silence
Alongside with the country and care and the constitution
Know that such impunity is the hand of decay and doom
Higher is Humanity because it cannot shed tears that are fluent
In pampering and patting and sugarcoating wickedness and folly
Deception dines with pride and lies and absurdities as if it has the license
To fool or ruin forever but such delusions cannot lull loving Justice into silence
For such savagery typifies gross violations of human rights and civilisation itself
