Plume Of Honour

It Was An Era Mankind  Groan’d
Brute, Its Ruthless Fangs, Apartheid
Regime So Repressive, South Africans Moan’d
           A Wail Of Laments, Less Than Slaves
                            O, Wept The Zulus, Aliens At Home
                                                         Where Is A Redeemer?
                                                                             Where Is God?
Freedom Zealots Are Kill’d, Jail’d
          Oliver Thambo, Nelson Mandela
“God Save Our Peoples”, Arch-Bishop Tutu Wail’d
             And Fellow Libertarians, Ungather’d  Abroad
                                     Minutes, Years, Roll’d! Androll’d By
                                                                Where Is A Redeemer?
                                                                                    Where Is God?      
Of Immortal Presence His Invisible Light
From The Heart Of Mandela Breath’d Forth This Torch
               A Promise Of Love
                    A Promise Of Freedom
                          A Promise For Forgiveness

Virtues, Hate Or Death Could Never Overcome
                In Praise And Resilience Scann’d The Minutes
                                      In Faith And Hope Waited Mandela
                                                   In Dream Of Freedom
                                                   In Dream For Forgiveness
O, Madiba, Within Thy Ribs Beats The Heart Of An Angel
                                              An African With Plume Of Honour
