THOSE WHO FOOL US
I will not bow to the hoodlums
Lucky Dube didn’t
And I won’t
Why should I?
They fool all the people all the time
They steal their votes
They blatantly rub them of victory
They chase their women
And rape their daughters in broad daylight.
They walk down the wrong way
Their pockets dripping with blood
Their breath filled with alcohol
Their trouser zips pulled right down
Their coats thrown off
Their shirt collars unbuttoned
And they call themselves men of the people.
They speak out of both sides of the mouth
They call white, black
And black, white
They have falsified their birth certificates
And short-changed their job descriptions
They sit on two stools at once
And ride three horses in one go
They eat food for three people
And walk on fellow human beings
With girl children as their walking sticks
They call themselves men of God
That’s why today
We worship the man of God
Instead of the God of man.
