Taken - ambiguity alert

Hallo dear - - -. Forgive me if I speak in ambiguities, they’ve taken our voices
 in a fit-to-be- interpreted-as-it-suits - - - act. Funny how it never applies to them.
- - -is okay but you should have seen his face when an evaluation officer asked
about his one year anniversary in business. Apparently they’d taken their names in
the application to the - - - Country for the…empowerment project. Poor him, he’s
still upset about his so-called business grant! And the - - -has no clue!

Oh little - - -! I pity him for having to grow up with brown teeth. Imagine living
in the city but drinking salty bore-hole water. Oh yeah they’ve diverted the
water to - - -   - - - farm(typical). - - - sends his love. He is still recovering from
that time. As if living in a rusty iron sheet house was not hard enough! They 
demolished their houses and gave the land to - - -so that he can build a---for his..
And to top it up - - - dad’s died along with sixty others. Their lives were taken 
when a ghost signed the release of contaminated - - - . I could have sworn that
signature was real!

Anyway, just to let you know that the - - -case was thrown out. The - - - found
out the hard way that their word amounts to nothing against - - - with guns and
immunity. Never mind that the kids are of another colour. Crazy, huh? Oh, by the
way, you should check your cash. In other news, unknown people entered the …
Bank and replaced the cash in three ATMs with counterfeits - top that!(pun intended)
I could go on but the rules have taken my words! Till we meet again, yours  - - -, ha!

    Vicki, I am so happy the book arrived and even more happy to read that you are enjoying it. Made my day!! Now onto your poem , u have expressed yourself with no regard which makes you daring and honest to the bone. Those are two traits that make up a true poet. The subject must be written and you gave it a voice and a life. Well done my poet friend. Hugs always Michael. Ps have you read my first book??

    very intresting and saddly true i know. there is nothing a good education can't fix. but it also takes unity the kind that some prejudices will never allow. but i did like the way you voiced your oppinion. john
