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.

Cabalistic - Acrostic Dectina

a sign
before we
all leave this place
lest we be forgot
in the time still to come.
Secrete our rituals in great rock
that all may know we once were here.
Invincible warlocks, hear me now -
Carve a sign before we all leave this place.
