MACHINE WEAPON

I discovered a Special present on my facebook page. A photo of Mandela had been uploaded into my photo space on my homepage. I don’t know who put it there but as a white South African I must be the envy of many. I wonder why? I display it now and have many friends of many nationalities and I wonder at my impulsive desire to assume his crown when no one knows who he is in the world now. This is because he would not have his image used symbolically like the of Che and it is guarded closely by the Nelson Mandela Foundation, this wish is. So to have an image not copyrighted is to know that you are special to someone.

Let us take to the hills

my brother

and take pot shots at the heads

of the nomad existence

that asks no one to find

the will to survive unless

it is to be here with God

in the name of Mandela

and the use of the word known

as machine weapon

is the way of making

the word of the man

seem like the joy that it is

in the life of man.

In the life of man

I stand still and watch

the colours recede into

dark and wonder where

it is not the better of two

to be here with You

and not with real life entities

called son and daughter of tribes

less known to God but better

than the work of mankind in making

it safe for all to die alone.
