Ode on a Distant Prospect of Nkandla Political Education Centre (or Elegy Written in a Political Graveyard)

This is the house that Jake built.

These are the trigger-happy guards protecting the house that Jake built.

This is the gate and curtain-wall watched by the trigger-happy guards protecting the house that Jake built.

These are the hugely costly roads which run to the gate and curtain-wall watched by the trigger-happy guards protecting the house that Jake built.

These are the high-speed blue-light cars which drive on the hugely costly roads which run to the gate and curtain-wall watched by the trigger-happy guards protecting the house that Jake built.

These are the crooks and political hacks who ride in the high-speed blue-light cars which drive on the hugely costly roads which run to the gate and curtain wall watched by the trigger-happy guards protecting the house that Jake built.

Those are the lies and cover-ups spun by the crooks and political hacks who ride in the high-speed blue-light cars which drive on the hugely costly roads which run to the gate and curtain wall watched by the trigger-happy guards protecting the house that Jake built.

This is the secret funding scam, concealed by the lies and cover-ups spun by the crooks and political hacks who ride in the high-speed blue-light cars which drive on the hugely costly roads which run to the gate and curtain wall watched by the trigger-happy guards protecting the house that Jake built.

This is the government plundering to sponsor the secret funding scam, concealed by the lies and cover-ups spun by the crooks and political hacks who ride in the high-speed blue-light cars which drive on the hugely costly roads which run to the gate and curtain wall watched by the trigger-happy guards protecting the house that Jake built.

This is the budget for the poor, depleted by government plundering to sponsor the secret funding scam, concealed by the lies and cover-ups spun by the crooks and political hacks who ride in the high-speed blue-light cars which drive on the hugely costly roads which run to the gate and curtain wall watched by the trigger-happy guards protecting the house that Jake built.

These are the voters who pay the bills, who sought  the budget for the poor, depleted by government plundering to sponsor the secret funding scam, concealed by the lies and cover-ups spun by the crooks and political hacks who ride in the high-speed blue-light cars which drive on the hugely costly roads which run to the gate and curtain wall watched by the trigger-happy guards protecting the house that Jake built.

This is the President fat and smug, who fools the voters who pay the bills, who sought  the budget for the poor, depleted by government plundering to sponsor the secret funding scam, concealed by the lies and cover-ups spun by the crooks and political hacks who ride in the high-speed blue-light cars which drive on the hugely costly roads which run to the gate and curtain wall watched by the trigger-happy guards protecting the house that Jake built.
