2. Invalid. Null. Void (01.09.2017) 

Having stilled his consciousness and narrowed it to a pin

of liberated energy – the tremble of history barely seen

in his unblinking stare – he then pinned the fierce glares

and let fly triplet rap tones in defiant burst of flares:

Failed. Neglected. Refused.|Not. Validly. Elected.|Invalid. Null. Void|

 

Silence. Then the Hyenas, their limping laughter now destroyed,

fled from the scene, pursued by the fiery memory of Sankara

and the smiling strength hidden in the humility of Mandela

Amidst the cheers, all knew there was a question to consider:

How long will this candle in the moody wind flicker?
