    Ancient
    as the pyramids,
    and once pure
    as a virgin
    untainted,
    unadulterated,
    undeflied,
    and once free to be
    whatever the heavens ordained.
    Now,
    captivated and trodden on
    by foreign dictorship,
    and engulfed with restlessness.

    The boom of bombs,
    the staccato stutter of hand guns,
    the acid grip of AIDS,
    the sunrise lamentations,
    the sunset hell,
    the tortured wails
    of Mother Nature writhing
    cursed by hands of modernity,
    and trample underfoot
    by the future.

    Zimbabwe
    I can feel
    how haunting
    daunting
    it is to be mistreated
    this way
    day after day,
    but
    be not afraid
    of security forces,
    pro-government supporters,
    unknown sources,
    vampires in the night!

    Vindicate!
    Orchestrate!
    Penetrate!
    ur DEMOCRATIC VOICE,
    an ur celestial vision
    against
    the murders
    rapes
    starvations
    diseases
    violence,
    and general misrule
    abuse
    misuse
    surrounded by the sad contentment
    of civilized progress
    anxious to maintain
    it's hegemony of coercion
    and fresh bloodstains.

    Zimbabwe
    rise up in ur millions
    to liberate,
    Illuminate,
    demostrate
    ur upmost disapproval
    for another South Africa,
    continue
    to SHOUT!
    SCREAM!
    CALL!
    al ur children
    from their geographic locations
    to join u
    in the tribal dance
    and ritual of death to evilness
    to resist
    political oppression,
    and the rape
    of ur constitutional right
    to fight the plight
    of the roque regime
    that yearns to destroy u.

    Zimbabwe
    DO NOT BE AFRAID!
    of the INJUSTICE done to u
    DO NOT BE AFRAID!
    NO FORCE IS STRONGER AN U!
    DO NOT BE AFRAID!
    save ur children
    from the invaders
    who proclaim a propaganda
    so unrepentant
    in it's disdain
    action against ur presence
    that only it's death
    can prophetic foretell
    ur entire existence.

    I felt the cry for the right of Zimbabwe
    and the cause for the right of
    all humans in their being!
    May your write bring attention
    to the plight of our brethren.
    Peace to ya!
