On A Hill Not Far Away - Poem by Diana van den Berg
Boers and Brits incarcerated Brits and Boers and Blacks
amongst others, Number Four
attacked the body, mind, soul and spirit,
but mostly did not win,
has given breach-birth
to a shimmering infant, Hope;
and a glass band
and eleven official welcomes
emblazon an invitation
in rainbow colours
to enter into
where every brick and style
has its story...
in these hallowed halls of history.
