Manto’s destruction?

Manto’s destruction?

i have accounted for, paid for, cried for,
the blood on my hands, tears in this land, blood in the sand…
has she, will she, can she
care about the future of her people
as they fall in skeletons at her feet
wasted by a non existent disease
that is killing the existence of Africa
dont worry about my destruction, i’m busy with reconstruction
all Manto wants is baby deaths; aids deaths ; deathdeathdeath
because 200 dead babies is normal at hospitals, clinics, morgues
emotive shmotive the facts speak for themselves
and as Mbeki and Zuma lead us ever further down the trail of hell
Dr Death wields the scythe of not to worry, all is well.
