A FLAG GLOWS

Blowing in white noise Listen to the people speak A flag at half mast Blacks mine gold bars Blood diamonds stolen wealth Africa’s rebirth Blue skies green fields Much brighter days lay ahead On fertile grazing Thabang Jan Ngoma 07-17-2015 From South Africa Flag colours - black, gold, green, white, chilli red and blue.
