Zimbabwe



The deafening silence spells a
verdict known well to traitors
from the cause of common
decency. Mass murderer of
20,000 Ndebele, self-styled
‘Black Jesus’ Robert Mugabe,
hides behind a wall of lies and
inference while all truth dies.

But is he prisoner of his own
pretence? Or is it a sentence
of death passed by people he’s
maligned – or the memories of
better times? Or is it fate? That
he survives at all suggests he’ll
shoulder arms and tell another
lie. And lie he does with ease.

Zimbabwe starves & dies while
he parades a wicked, autocratic
arrogance before the people he
benightedly condemns.
