We like omelette but condemn egg shell breaking.
Our hero is Mandela but we want him without the suffering on Robben Island.
Marcus Garvey, Steve Biko, Che, Castro……all our heroes but we condemn any and all who want to walk the rough road they chose to trudge,
We must consider them fools, raving lunatics
Since knowing the consequences of the choices they were making and still made them,
their insanity brought them pains
and give us the gains we now sip in our tall cocktail glasses
