obscene instance

hebehebe lathalatha tseketseke mamela :
obscene instance
ditsie-minds ravage ratsieland
this masisapelo moment

for pierre mulele
they tied his spine to a raft
to steer across the congo-rivered genocide
a murderous ride
cancerous pride
tribalistic ones
putrefied carcasses enough
to bring a caress
to a racist's conscience
colour-blind hierarchies

intestines for whips
these bleeding lips
what vengeance hatred retribution meant
a viscera-excreta relation

hebehebe lathalatha tseketseke mamela :
obscene instance
ditsie-minds ravage ratsieland
this masisapelo moment

so forlorn
holds a worm in admiration
legs in amputaion? drumsticks
give the drama-
tist character
with a clenched fist
like soldiers for peace
read moon tza's
fart of gore
to prepare for WAR
venom spill
poison-filled syringe
dread-chalice severed head on a string
from going to rigor mortis to how "text is not words"

hebehebe lathalatha tseketseke mamela :
obscene instance
ditsie-minds ravage ratsieland
this masisapelo moment

tears parade
fat as maggots in cadavers
mourners for pay scream
shrill enough to cut through bread but
can't drill into heads
corrupt tentacles
herd tendrils up sin-mountain
down hades hole
manhood bragging rights?
mutilated babies body-parts
