Terry Dawson (1955 / Harare, Zimbabwe.)
A Crime to Speak the Truth?
Some averred but they're absurd
That we declined
Because our leaders erred.
But now convictions are that our constrictions
Are the fault
Of the shopping restrictions.
We must desist, the lawshall insist
From saying, our decline
Is due to other than The List.
