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!
