African Rainbow Snake, Heal Us!

African Rainbow Snake: Heal Us!

I slithered into existence

During a night of yellow rains in the Rand

I caught the rainbow in the palm of my hand

The rainbow became my inner eye

I no longer see people in black and white

Everyone has become multi-coloured,

a reflection of the rainbow

Now I slither past pandemics, 

bankruptcy and poverty

Into new beginnings in our land!
