You’re saying #ImStaying but you’re playing
If you’re not also up for
wailing against the flailing
arms and bodies broken
am i joking?
i don’t expect you’ll understand
In fact you cannot hear because your head is in the sand
[But the moment that i pointed that out, Boom! i was banned!]
That move was my prerogative
You were not being positive
We try to keep it light in here
So don’t come bring your slight in here
The negatives just disappear
And colourblindness is our cheer
You are the one who’s missing out
On all the joy we are about
And now you can no longer see
These pictures that display our glee
My domestic worker and me
Together in this family
You questioning our sisterhood? You must be smoking ganja
Then how come she is the one who has priv’lege of toilet plunger?
Let’s take a moment now to discuss who’s being neurotic
Cos i’m sick and tired of hearing you don’t think i’m patriotic
When you said i do not do the work, you know that really hurt?
Especially cos i already have bought my #Staying shirt
So post your pics of overseas
You haven’t flown yet? Brother, please.
Your time will come, until then, shame
Perhaps give me African name.
Let’s keep it light and comfortable
Sit by the fire and just chill
Just breathe in deep and have your fill
Do not dig deep and don’t speak ill
WHATEVER YOU DO…
Please, stay away from the window…
Lest you accidentally look outside.
And catch a glimpse...
