African Drum - Poem by Jabulani Mzinyathi

the demonised drum
speaks to my soul
soothing my african soul
sweetly caressing it

invoking those spirits
the restless spirits of my people
hot iron branded pagan
those that dangled at noose ends

reverberations of the drum
spelling out my happiness
at times messages of strife
the demonised drum
