    Ere, soccer was all white

    The Meet1 was charged, informal as alive,
    The Soccer Cup’s host nation to arrive,
    The Protean point while was presented,
    Not many words were used, more of grey head.

    Silent and speechless did the slide show speak,
    The screen showing a map mark’d in colour,
    Eighteen hosts of ere had had their savour,
    The black and white State now awaits a pick.

    World’s every land mass had had its moment
    Of glory, Soccer World Cup once to host,
    Save Africa, one single continent—
    The point to those that would choose was not lost.

    All of Africa’s north, south, east and west,
    Showed was in black, with a border in white,
    A point on apartheid’s evil was prest,
    Subtlety worked and Meet’s mind was made quite.

    This happened ere six agonising years,
    The vote when had moved Mandela to tears;
    Of all sporting sports soccer seems sans peers,
    It can nudge a nation on to high gears.

    And that is what Mandela had in mind—
    That, black-white hexagons can’t live afar,
    Let lines of apartheid be redesigned,
    Let every man here get a spot in star.

    And South Africa had a statement made
    To the world— if or not World Cup it wins:
    We too deserve glory painted in red,
    Will has her way, if or not there are means.
    ____________________________________________________________
    1. This was a meeting in Zurich in 2004 to choose the nation
    to host the Soccer World Cup in 2010. South Africa was
    one of the claimants.

    This poem was born on the eve of Soccer World Cup, which
    started in South Africa this month.

    Can you hear him?

    Can you hear him whispering behind his window
    Can you hear the rain tick against the glass ever so slow
    To remind him that the rain hasn't stopped for years
    But the pavement isn't drenched with water but with blood and tears read more »

    My Africa

    She is like an Ashanti, her skin kisses the black of the stars.
    Her smile is dry with character like the rivers of her mother land.
    Her eyes gaze upon the sun that has a scorche and has seen the history of her man kind.
    Her hands burst with veins filled with the pain of her mothers and sisters. read more »
