During A Power Failure (Limerick) - Poem by Gert Strydom

A being is introduced as the Lord of Darkness
and a stranger joins them and says: Let’s not digress,
but you must be the general manager at Escom, the place
from where no electricity comes, it’s a total disgrace
with the resulting lawlessness.
