We Are Not An Error But The Idioms Of Our Era

By Ndaba Sibanda

We Are Not an Error but the Idioms of Our Era

We are the idioms of our time, a huge cabinet
We belong together, to this earth, this planet

Why do we thrive in muddle and destruction?
Walk in the ravines of unease and corruption?

Like words whose meanings cannot be found
From the literal or dictionaries that are sound

Let us be the proverbs: our lives are short
Let no hate thrive or live or receive support

Lessons on climate change need to be inferred
From wise sayings, actions or so advised a nerd
