Shackles Of Yester Year? - Poem by persian khushi

Yes I question this
There own do not want them
Racism in reverse
Animal farm at play
No one is safe
First you were not white enough
And pushed to the outskirts of rural life
In exile
In your own country
Mr. Mandela released over eighteen years ago
The world is in awe
A country worse off
A country on her knees
Your shin not black enough
Lining their coffers
Diamond studded weddings
President no example to the youth
Backward thinking
Gutter education

Hospitals, colleges closed down
What will happen after Madiba's demise?
Civil war
No one will be safe
