    Golgotha episode 911

    ballot defaecating shadows of hunger over

    poverty creased napkins of my mind

    slums farting anopheles into the gutters of my blood

    long departed hunters urinated bullets into iron uterus of

    war tired peasants

    giving birth to atomic bombs
    and suckling grenades

    media wizards imbibing propaganda salami

    and slogan pizza

    hunger mandraxed rabbis licking fingers after chalk dust noon meals

    i am a word dynamite fumigating corrupt economic bedbugs

    sucking out the fertility of our sunshine
    clouds of hungry bellies rumble with a formula

    sunrise with virus graffiti scribbled on its forehead

    moon rise with roaches corrupting its eczema eaten breasts

    bread buttered with tutsiville blood ,sanguages cheesed with

    darfur wounds

    gore dripping diamonds auctioned for flesh guzzling guns

    brown teethed nights grazing green mealies before fingers
    of dawn caress vendetta wounded minds

    unrepentant Ngo bishops pimping vulnerables for fat cheque books,gong and bling

    greenback laureates double crossing peacecrats and warcrats in donor shebeens
    economic whores dipping their sperm-ducts in diplomatic brothels

    paparazzi gutters vomiting garbage of spray painted columns

    slogan dogs parodying Hiroshima farce and bag dad comedy

    greenhorns licking leftovers of propaganda braai packs after ballot arithmetic

    undersized zealots fitting political g-strings in springs of delimitation
    political morons mastering propaganda syllabus in their gimmick- tired memories.

    i am a poetic chlorine puritising political mental conveyor belts

    from the crude oil of corruption
    i am a metaphoric lotion peeling off eczema of the decade election herpatitis
