You Can’t Even (Look After Yourself)

You can’t even
look after yourself
mutters a Jitsvinger look-alike
(I should look up the brother!)
to a young woman he is
conveniently attached to
in our crowded cattle truck

You can’t even
look after yourself
you might to mutter
about certain young lions
defending their turf
in the name of whatever

You can’t even
look after yourself
practice what you preach
you set the example
(travel third class train!)

You can’t even
look after yourself
never you mind
the rest of the youth

You can’t even
look after yourself
rallying to the cause
of our emperor-to-be
and those who hang on

You can’t even
look after yourself

But, then again,
what example do we set

Monday morning, June 23 2008, minding my own business squeezed into our third class cattle truck, Cape Town bound
