Preaching the gospel
is Dr Gcina Mhlophe
Storyteller Writer
Performer and lots else

she is now titled
is she though we don’t
hear it from her

(it’s the excitable
SAFM morning fellow
who tells)

Preaching the gospel
she is
of literacy
with a capital ‘L’
it is

I listen
fascinated by her
early morning

Who else is

in classrooms
and factories
in fields and fjords

in the name of
made and unmade
and unfinished too
here and elsewhere

(Russia did it in 1918
Cuba our lodestar
Nicaragua Chile Grenada)

Preaching the gospel
of literacy

SAFM Sunrise’s Stephen Grootes is all bubbly, way before the 0830am interview, Friday 23 Aug 2019!
