Who Owns This Land - Poem by Segomotso Kandle Shamukuni

people have to fight
to secure themselves a piece of land
the world is rushing for land
the rich robe the poor their land

the poor due to their financial stand
unfit they lose their stand
as much as the snakes has not land
particularly this one passing by my feet..

my stillness disturb not her movement
my sight already caught her sight
both we got not land

reason why we meet not on sand
do I really have to go buy land?
from whom with land
that owns such land?
