Drought - Poem by Qiniso Mogale

The rain will not rain
The sun is scorching
The rivers are dry
Life is miserable
Life's conditions are deplorable.

Terror reigns supreme
Horror rules in entirety
Hunger is ravaging many
The drought in bank accounts
The drought in world economies.

The drought in moral behavior
The drought in integrity
The drought in humility
The drought in honesty
Yes, drought in telling the truth
We pray for rai
We pray for the end of the drought
The world will once again be a better place.
