There are no breaking news at the moment

Taking assigned seat at banquet table
Right across from me Robert Mugabe
President of Zimbabwe
Destroyer of Rhodes and his ilk
Leader of the Revolution
Against Apartheid, Racism, Colonialism, Imperialism
Personal Hero

Intelligent, sophisticated, well-informed, polished, well-spoken
Devout Catholic too
Vilified by Western Governments and their Flunky News Media
No surprise there

After dinner talking about his problems I joked
Mr. President, the British and the Americans will never forgive you
For leading a successful revolution against them
He laughed heartily
Great sense of humor too

But Mr. President
With all due respect, Sir
You will not live forever
You must set up a transition process
For your Successor

The British, Americans, World Bank, IMF
Are still lusting for Zimbabwe
They will move in for the kill
As soon as you have gone on to your just reward
You must now put things in place
To provide for your People’s future

I shed no tears
For descendants of White, racist, colonial, imperialist, genocidal settlers
Exterminating Black African Natives to steal their beautiful land
Let them go back to Europe!
Zimbabwe for Zimbabweans!
Africa for Africans!
Whitey go home!
Unless you will live
Like everyone else
In Zimbabwe
Free and proud
Black Power for all!
Up the Rebels!

  1. The first three post-apartheid Presidents of South Africa supported the homophobe, racist, dictator Mugabe. Some claim he was appointed by God, rather like Trump.

  2. It’s right to respect the revolutionary, and condemn his advance to Animal Farm.
