Umsanguluko - Poem by Treasure Mndeni Ngobese

Lamaphoyisa angivale


Ebusuku ngizibuyela kumtakwethu.


Abuyise izithombe zase-Apartheid Museum.


Kumhume wemidlalo


Yezithakazelo nasekuncengeleni.


Ngisephakathi kwabo ubumnyama bentunja,


Ihlaya lamahlaya,


Ngawumnikelo wezinja.


Ekupheleni kwefilimu.


Kuyiyo imbokodo


Yekhokhonathi entanyeni.


Ezitshisakalweni zethu.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

The idea of writing this poem was triggered by the brutality of the police in the townships and around Black occupied areas. This had always brought back memories from a visit to Apartheid museum. This piece arouses as an evidence of the continuation of black subjugation in South Africa.
