Congratulations, wilma. Was this movie a huge hit in Africa? I was just thinking that must be why you loved that movie. It shows your country's beautiful landscape. How are you today, sweetie? Luv, Andrea

Hi Wilma, just noticed that I hven't comment recently on your poems! Sorry for that! I have seen a movie on German TV about those "Blood Diamonds", quite stirring! Always that greed!!! Simply terrible! Thanks for your welcome comment. I must tell you that I received yesterday a music CD from my Australian fried (a disc from South Africa, called "Khayelitsha-United Mambazo" with the SA-Anthem on it), really enjoyed it today. I love the chorus a capella. And it is not the first CD with this.

Your poem sums up 'Blood Diamonds' Meager wages to massive profits = greed. After watching the movie of the same name, It prompted me to write a poem also. Nice Lanterne Wilma....:)
