Rookie (1988 OCTOBER 16 / RANDFONTEIN)

Where is the future?

If we legalize abortion,
if we legalize prostitution,

That's the only answer I know 'NO'

Why are our streets full of kids and adults?
Where are they from?
These are the questions without answers.
I couldn't hold my tears when I saw a poor child in the street.

Where is the future of Africa?
we still have racism.

I stand where I stood with my very first question
where is the future?

In the long sunny afternoon,
