Easter on the Cape Flats

On Good Friday after church we eat curried pickled fish and hot crossed buns and drink black coffee because we share in the painful agony of the Lord. On Easter Sunday after church we braai * meat and drink like fish and rejoice in the victory over death and grave. * (rhymes with "bye" ) - barbeque / barbecue

Very interesting for me to read a Kwansaba, David: It is informative on many levels both the story and the form. I included Kwansaba in my ABC of Poetry that I just got into the competition by a hair.....last poem, Have a wonderful week, SuZ SuZ
