APRIL 1994

Written by: Suzette Richards

To right a wrong of ages past
A nation writhe in pain
A cross is what it now would take
So much for all to gain

Some errors couldn’t be atone'
Abuse will reap its toll
 “Abolish” we had strove to meet
A mark on voters’ roll 

All business came to halt for days
A joyous spirit found
Some busses rolling into town
Big smiles were all round

In queues we stood in pouring rain
A hopeful crowd at best
Awaiting turns at poll to vote
Most eager like the rest

The historical vote of April 1994, when South Africa became a democratically elected government which changed the face of Africa.
