Sounds Changed

Poetry By: Shannan Browne

Times change, cultures change, but is it for the better?

Sounds Changed
Cries for freedom, to fraudulent whispers.
Ululations of unity, to lazy laughter.
Gunshots of hate, to giggles in a dagga haze.
Crying for fresh water, to drunk on booze.
Festive townships to filthy flats.
From funfilled soccer fields,
To insults behind barracades.
Soweto 1976 to suburbia 2006.
