Treasure Island

Margaret Alice Second

(24 January 1961 / South Africa)

Completely Deranged [Revised]


Even explaining or defending this
hateful system masquerading as
god-sanctioned and heaven-sent,
disguised as ‘Africans’ freedom’
to be their tribal selves in non-
arable land - 13% of the country -

While prohibited from living on
70 per cent of the land where they
were allowed as migrant workers
with a pass to present to the police
on demand; just claiming this racial
Nazi system was well-intentioned

Is propaganda, evidence of a mind
completely deranged…
