Parastatals and Providers
When the wind blows through the trees
My lights go out
When Eskom demands more money from users
My power is cut
When my internet provider is told by ICASA to cut costs
My surfing is interrupted
When workers are demanding more pay
My garbage piles up on the pavement
When crime is rampant
I am told there is no racist crimes in South Africa
When soldiers demand more salaries to live
I am told that they should not have unions
When there is a financial crisis
MP’s drive bling cars
Yes, even robbers drive bling get-away vehicles
To keep up with the politicians!

The Devil Won This Game
The Devil Came Out Tops. . .
He even beat the cops.
Someone died in a crash.
Alcohol was the cause of the grief.
Lucifer was the mortal thief.
Lee had to make a pact.
To get her lovers life back.
She sold her soul to the Devil.
Bringing him back to her level.
She is now a young lass without a soul.
Bringing back his life, her only goal.
She had to carry his wooden cross.
To her and the world, a great loss.
I was that victim sad to say.
Brought back to smile and play.
Leaving the black hole caused all the pain
Here on earth with Lee to remain!
