Xenophobia

People running in the streets,

helter skelter through the confusion,

people beating each other,

some armed with weapons old and new,

breaking into shops stealing,

and now the police all in blue

are chasing shooting,

using water canon,

battles move down the streets

into other streets and back again,

some carry placards saying foreigners get out,

this violence is African on African and is terrible,

a great blight on the rainbow nation.

    • One always prays and hopes soon, but though there are huge problems in Africa, the international press concentrates on them and not some of the more positive and wonderful things that are happening in Africa. There are some truly wonderful things happening that would not happen anywhere else in the world, and when some these get out, and people see how truly remarkable they are, they will change the entire world and its outlook.
