Dichotomies



16 years after apartheid, dichotomies are still evident.
some critics might even ask, if things have changed...??

the wealthy few live behind 4m high walls,
topped with barbwire fence and electric wire,
monitored my cameras,
protected and served by those they don't want
to empathize with.

the vast majority still struggle in abject poverty -
unnecessarily?!
the most forgiving souls.
oppression, racism, injustice, disrespect...
then and now.
Still so loving, accepting, forgiving....

it would be wonderful to see
this rainbow nation becoming
one.
