Excerpt from “Death in the hood” (#PoemsbyCephas)

Grief stricken I am,
tears won’t bring relief
I mourn a society whose exorcism lies in limbo.

The confused cooing of ailing pigeons,
stand as eulogies somewhere in the skies.
Obituaries are being read to the reticent heavens_
God give us another, He was worthy guy,
With a name writ in water
Ubuntu has died!
