Another One Bites The Dust - Poem by Thobile Masondo

Careless decisions
Imperfect conclusions
Wrongful judgments
Another one bites the dust

An innocent soul prematurely dies
Another child bellows in the dark
Another nation is overwhelmed by fear
Another one bites the dust

A casual observer looks on with no emotion
A barren woman thanks the Gods
A wealthy nation continues to flourish
Another one bites the dust

Paint the skies black and red
The sun should shine no more
Tell the stars to cease their glow
Mothers plead with heavens
Brides wear black and grey
Mother earth release your anger
Dear poet, no more love verses
Silence the praise singer
Silence the trumpet
Let all mourn the death of a conscience
As another one bites the dust
