If Forefathers Knew?

Poetry By: Shannan Browne

When you are fighting for rites, will the future generations appreciate or destroy?

If Forefathers Knew?
Once, a culture of strength and unity:
A proud, dignified Zulu
Strong character
Ruled, obeyed brotherhood
A kingdom of princes.
Once, a custom of Ubuntu:
A respect for elders, for all
Unity in generations
Growing higher and higher;
Dignified, powerful, admirable.
Today a different style of business:
Corruption, consumption, criminal court cases.
Upholding the right to lose:
Dignity, respect, tradition, admiration.
I fight for myself, next generation lose.
