About Me

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.

he died
as the sun died
rejected by a friend
at least thrice before the cock crowed
and while some protested his innocence
and others hung their heads with shame
a woman wailed and wept
and the earth shook

he died
