  • in a land now inverse in political, social and cultural views, our rulers have decreed that Afrikaans is to be abolished, to be no more. a sundering in vengeance. and a law yet to be written in stone.
    embittered and angered, confused and estranged, mostly by histories not their own, Afrikaaners are stalwartly bidding and fighting to retain their linguistic heritage.
    hopefully now indelible in stone,
    an awesome temerity
    to be exact.
    but with both blacks and whites such ardent users
    the language remains a legacy

    vir ewig en altyd!
    (for ever and always!)

    what dimming cloaks our rulers cast about actions before a public viewing ...
    and how small the cracks other leaders allow for what little light sifts through.
