Not Even for Chocolate (In Defence of our Constitution)

Don’t kill
for anything
or anyone

Not even for chocolate
live for our Constitution
live for today (and)
for tomorrow too
which might be
somewhat better

Not even for chocolate
though we can’t
even eat it
our Constitution, that is,
or any post-Polokwane
political rhetoric though
there might be food for thought

Defend our Constitution
not in your name
or mine

Defend our Constitution
and not an individual
who promises

Defend our Constitution
today and tomorrow
for its promise
of a better tomorrow

(Though it might be
much too late)

My response to the Mail&Guardian request to “Sign our Declaration” or pen a response – which I did whilst on a cattle-truck Salt River bound from Eerste River, the morn of Monday, June 30, 2008 (my last day at “work”).
