Fortune flavours the slave

peppers at the open wounds

Heat of pain rising

African sun of soreness set

Dented and bruised

the fallen plum

Rolls with the wind

tours the ground of hurt

A trail of blood

deceit and barbed wire

Ripped flesh

inner prejudice exposed

A road of recovery

blockaded and lost

The map of change

shred and spread

Limbs tired

shackled and numb

Luck salts

the flavour of political resistance

His release in 1990

Racial change afoot

Victory for common sense

seasoned with rationality
