Now we are alone
George Bizos is gone
Human Rights Lawyer
and Human Being

breaking it is
on the 8pm eTV news
where a neighbour-past
is reporting on his client
Mzansi’s Caster Semenya

he tells a bit
of their minds meeting
(way back then before 1994)
Bizos one of the contributors
to our Constitution

though the state we’re in
saddened the humanitarian
he who sought refuge here
at a tender age

Now we are alone
someone comments
on evening SAfm radio
as tributes pour in

A giant has fallen
he who touched
many lives

Now we are alone
in the state we are in
