Tuesday 1.40pm pray for my country

from a friend to me
please tonight anytime between
say, 6 and 10 please please, a couple of times,
send positive love out to South Africa and the people who love it.
Or pray for South Africa if that’s what you would prefer to do.

i replied
agreed. do those who have love need it?
i’ll send love to those who do and those who dont…

because thats all thats left
our only weapon now is
love thy enemy
turn the other cheek
forgive them,
for they know not what they do
grannies die under boiling kettles
babies entrails drag from their vaginas
shot for a cellphone
raped for schoolbooks
molested for punishment
for wearing too short skirts
ask your deity tonight
whoever she or he is
to help give back some love
just a little love
