Decrepit Politics


March 22, 2016 by petrujviljoen

Jacob Zuma the mockery of black history

blatant abrogation, obscene greed

the immoral compass.

Absolute insolence in the face

of the state of the poverty-stricken

nation – barely conscious

after Apartheid.

Illiterate rhetoric gestures duty

while South Africa is captured

in an economic melt-down

  2. Thanks for the reminder that plutocracy (and the Chauvinism/nationalism/racism, sickness and death that result) is a global problem. We here in USA tend to forget that. after reading the link and looking at some cartoons there, I’ve bookmarked dailymaverick for further reminders.

    It seems a hopeless situation when under the rule of such arrogance and greed. I always wonder how is it that these horrible people end up head of countries. He is one of many immoral compasses out there.

  4. So sad when all turns to a battle of power… greed such as that is the worst, and it seems to happen everywhere.

    It can be so difficult to watch corruption and political power plays interfere with the bettering of conditions for all.

    I feel your outrage!

    Immoral compass indeed ~ Such greed in their hearts & I have no sympathy for them who rule in rich materials stuff while the rest of the nation is suffering a melt down ~
