A Reality Show with a Difference

By Ndaba Sibanda

A Reality Show with a Difference

She lived in a corroded cruel country
where she was so cross and bored
with herself and everyone else
that she could pelt an official
with her barrage of saliva
if she happened on one
canvassing for her vote!

She envied carefree countries
where MPs were in the habit
of mistaking the august house
for a complete and crazy circus,
where entertainment was served up
in the form of wild kicks and punches,
something she called one of her favorite
reality shows in the entire world, and
all in the revered name of democracy!
