Pete’s Damn-O’Crazy Alphabet
13 June 2016
A is for autocracy and anarchy,
to keep him on top of the hierarchy.
B is for the billion-dollar loans he gets
for politicians, a. k. a. puppets.
C is the time he decides to be a count-
ry cock-roach and gets all that his cats want.
D depraves and destroys our democracy
to grind out a devious damn-O’crazy.
E elect, elevate and appoint cronies
to hold key posts in the public service.
F and use fear and intimidation from
feral forces to nullify freedom.
G people vote the government of the day,
but it does not listen to what they say.
H the Haus that has turned into a brothel
where chiefs with venal vents stroke the devil.
I am available for an interview,
but I cannot allow the interview.
J a justice system that is perverted,
and a judge Pete-fool-ly penetrated.
K is Buck Key, Shark Ora and Poo Raka,
three monkeys that gobble Pete’s banana.
L a law that is made for my convenience,
that I twist to foster false innocence.
M is for making Machiavellian music,
and a media that’s drunk with Pete’s magic.
N I have a lot of numbers in my back.
That’s why I have an imposing stomach.
O I must silence every opposition,
and tell the world we’re in good condition.
P a parliament that is fitting for pigs
when politicians become folly-pigs.
Q to fool the whole world with one question: But,
Mister Speaker, I will step down for what?
R is to turn high-school dropouts and rascals
into dumb rogues and legal criminals.
S is to shoot unarmed students and blame them
for keeping a law that can’t protect them.
T go on TV and bark at the students
and, for being right, arrest their presidents.
U surround the university campus.
Shoot them for you can’t make it to that class.
V postpone some parliamentary sessions
to evade the Vote of No Confidence.
W and use time as a weapon to muffle
the voices rising against your trouble.
X the people gave you power with an “X”.
You made them powerless with increased tax.
Y say the time to remove you is next year,
and make two whores out of a white lawyer.
Z finally, call Zimbabwe’s Mugabe
and tell him you’ve become Shete O’gabe.
