Plagued by an Energy Pandemic

By Ndaba Sibanda

Plagued by an Energy Pandemic

Lord, have mercy on us,
there is a lousy, drowsy load of load
shedding crisis that has snowballed
into a daily disruptive, piteous plague.

Our prayer seeks to push out an energy
pandemic that preys on the powerless peoples
of Zimbabwe and South Africa, it reigns supreme
by virtue of an acute lack of pragmatism and vision.

It is like the mad mutations of the Covid-19 pandemic,
an energy pandemic that plunges sanity into insanity,
happiness into helplessness, productivity into paralysis,
homesickness into haziness, brightness into bleakness.
