Suid-Afrika Ons vir Jou

Suid-Afrika Ons vir Jou

Die grafstene vertoon wit teen die donker bome
laaste rusplek van ons jong seuns
lewens geoffer vir ons land
êrens snik ‘n moeder hart
‘n jong vrou se smart.

Waarvoor vra ons nou
vir vryheid
veilige strate
en ‘n land te bou
maar die smet bly groei
te vergeefs
te laat.

Nee nie te laat
Boervolk neem nou hande
buig ons hoofte
op ons knieë in berou
staan getrou
“Suid-Afrika ons vir jou”
onthou.

Racist

Racist

Yes maybe I am
but due to your actions
your black hearts
lack of compassion
you force me to become one
no human can be responsible
for the black hearted torture of another human being
rape of innocent children
and destruction of a once beautiful country
I don’t believe an animal would behave
like that
only cruel creatures
half human
half creatures from hell.
Yes you may call me Racist.

The Flower Children



The Flower Children.

Vertel dit soos dit was.
blommekinders met stringe in die hare.
Plakate swaai “make love not war”
“ban the bomb” en lê by hom, maak nie saak wie hy was.

Vrye liefde was die ding
Hiepie kind kom lê by my in my “van”
Op die deur staan geskryf
“Ma don’t laugh, your daughter might be within”

Lê met bene gesprei soos ‘n sker
Nog ‘n dwelm trek aan die “pot”
blomme in die hare, voel ‘n veer, hoeveel was dit nou weer?
wie gee om ek tel nie meer.

Die sestigs was die tyd van die “hiepie hiepie shake”
viagra? nog nie op die mark, “what the hell”
nie nodig die volgende ou reeds reg vir die sker.
Woodstock lê nog voor.

Dankbaar tog HIV nog in die verskiet
anders was ‘n nasie tot niet.
Ag ja ek was nog te jonk om dit te geniet
“wear flowers in your hair”

KransBurgers

Penorent sit hy daar
gooi sy skel-vloeke oor die kloof
skel-vloek word hy geantwoord
krap-skrop die wyfies vir skerpioen en uintjies rooi-boude in die lug
kleintjies skarrel klaend met sterte styf
bollemakiesie oor mekaar
wyl brandwag se skel-vloeke kaats teen die krans
eggoend tot onder in die kloof.

The Ride

Your velvet lips send sensual fire up my arm when you nibble my palm

the thought of your body between my legs, your muscles trembling oh what heaven

your soulful brown eyes soft light reflected from deep within melt my heart

your soft whinny the call to ride to take to the veld in wild abandon let us leave sorrow and stress behind.

Dragtig

Dragtig

Gedra op die wind se rug
dawerend luid die trop
se galop
geel en wit
grys en swart
almal swaar dragtig
oor die veld kom hul aan.
‘n Verblindende flits
‘n donderende knal.
Asof hiervoor gewag
bars die vrugwater voort
spoel oor die verdorde aarde
opgesuig soos moedersmelk.
Die wolke
nou leeg geseën
kombers die aarde
in vertroeteling
met beloftes van meer reën.

Sê My Waarom

Sê My Waarom

Hulle is skaars negentien
op patrollie in die bos
knal en plof
vlees-en-bloed in die stof
eenkant lê ‘n voet.
Dokter sê my tog
waarom dan die sweet
met die Guyfox-klapper-knal
nagmerries in helderkleur
as die helikopterlemme draai.
Ons was skaars negentien
op patrollie in die bos.

Abracadabra

Abracadabra

“I create as I speak”
I create as I think
I create as I write.
The electron pulses
create thoughts
colour the canvas
deep in the grey matter.
We are creators
each and every one of us
the occult creation amongst
the brain folds
knowing or unknowing
hazy or brilliant
that we are.

IT

IT

T’s with wonder that I contemplate the intricacies of mankind
man’s fascination with horror and fear
they thrill at stories of the living dead
Zombies, murder and death
at night they cannot sleep
fear is their opium
but with the quickening of dawn fear disappear
and they appear normal once again.

Are we normal?
