I exclaim in mock horror one Sunday morn,
what with an official car at the local church
(Western Cape Government)
occupants faithfully all dressed up
(not looking like any raggedy-trousered philanthropists)
might they be in proudly-SA-made gear
name-branded trade-marked after the hour
of the 9 to 5 does this work in your town.
Does this work have permission
for its non-9 to 5 labour activity?
Does the driver have some amnesty
from high above (he puffing away with gay abandon).
One Sunday morn it could be any genuflecting public servant
so called and even so-called
What is the government doing here or anywhere
