Ambush Street ( W.Sony )
I understand we carry the can for the
government man with his head in the sand
We pushed him up the hill
with his fingers in the till
the Sunday morning paper trail
he tried to kill
the toxic spill
but failed
and was nailed
but was he black mailed?

The ministers wife
sits for life in Lamborghini seats and suits
she controls the mining rights
while he controls the the human rights
Tender irregularities
with a mistress
Make the headlines overnight
with a deal for the broadcast rights

Disturbing the peace
Disturbing the police

it’s hard to beat the Jo’burg heat
when knocking down doors in ambush street
we are discreet in Jo’burg heat
when breaking the law in ambush street

Disturbing the peace
Disturbing the police

One morning I walk past the
suburban dog on Highland Road
he looks at me and barks and
reconnects with the electric fence
lights come on in upstairs rooms
I move along and feel as if I
have committed some sort of a crime
a crime - in time - we will all
be victims of crime
