Poem: Erection time

Electoral quicksand Dragging me under So slowly it is barely noticeable Political tricks and Hypnotic suggestion that only Two paths lead safely away One that has been walked on For years and does well (for everyone who possesses shoes) - - While the sharts of class Continue to slice the defeat Of those whose homes Have just been repossessed to the back of yet another Public Protector vehicle To ensure they sea this point [...]

The City of Cape Town and the DA that works for no, not you…

It's the end of the DA as we know it [or is it a realisation of the DA as they have always been?] i don't tend to write overtly political posts on here. Well, a lot of what i write is political but i mean with regards to specific political parties.

She [...]
