About Me

My photo
Johannesburg, Gauteng, South Africa
I am a white African. Contradiction in terms? I think not. Sometimes my blog will be serious; sometimes sad; sometimes irreverent; sometimes witty; always my truth simply written.

(pronounced something like “tore-kore-losh-ee”. This nonet is written about the fabled little man whom many black South Africans fear - possibly more than death itself)

Tokoloshe! Zulu warrior,
why is it you tremble in fear
when you hear “Tokoloshe”?
Surely he is not real,
this pint-sized zombie
with gouged-out eyes
and power
to kill
