A Rondel for Nelson Mandela

RUDOLPH ADIDI:
To Mandela who pulled the branch
and proved it can grow on its own.
Youths no longer sow, no trees grown,
freedom dies or, lives in a ranch.
Corruption breathes with no more stanch,
as horns of hell are also blown.
To Mandela who pulled the branch
and proved it can grow on its own.
Your sweat dries like an avalanche
no more Nelsons-to-be -some clone,
as Africa is under-sown.
Can we live, is there still a haunch?
To Mandela who pulled the branch.
VERA BONNY:
Madiba has made history
His best has found a nest to rest
Loud happy chants of victory
From south Africa unto West
Madiba has made history
With success of his freedom quest
Madiba has made history
His best has found a nest to rest
How he passed time, a mystery
In 27 years of test
Many dark and cold nights attest
To waves of valedictory
Madiba has made history.
