"Can We Survive This Plan?" by Sandra du Plessis

Can we survive this evil plan
which comes from man?
They take away
our monthly pay.

The food can't last if not restocked
the roads are blocked;
our only shot
to scrape the pot.

Our rulers set aside the whites
remove our rights;
receive free food
white man's pursued.

The book continues with Heavenly Scene. We will provide a link to it when you review this below.

Example:
I Need Someone

I need someone to hold me tight
Through dark of night,
Who won't go 'way
At break of day.

Someone whose love will mend the seams
Of broken dreams,
And give me back
The trust I lack.

For love, it holds the magic key
To set me free,
To heal my soul
And make me whole.
