Move Away from Cholera

By Ndaba Sibanda

Move Away from Cholera

even days after the broadcast, she couldn't swallow it --
the bitterness of the verdicts, of the votes, of the statistics

every day she yelled out names, words: boobs, badasss, Bobs --
legacy, cancer, cholera, cruelty, crippling chaos, social chasm, curse!!

I heard people plead with her, confessing they too were tired of it all
-- but shift, move away from unmoved bugs, away from BP to positivity
