Cape Town City


They say is the mother city
They say it's the great place to be
They say everything is easy
Easy because they don't work for them.

It's always busy
It's always corrupt
It's always uncontrollabe
It's full of crime
So many have gone there
But never come back.

    For all the tears are not in vain
    Though much in pain but not in shame
    For what we've learned with us remain
    All the world's town's are the same.

    Though they differ in terrain
    And the pretty flags they claim
    the tattoos of groups' graffiti
    All the world is Cape Town City.

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
