An Abandoned Bundle
The morning mist
and chimney smoke
of White City Jabavu
flowed thick yellow
as pus oozing
from a gigantic sore.
It smothered our little houses
like fish caught in a net.
draped in red bananas of blood
for a squirming bundle.
I threw a brick?
they bared fangs
flicked velvet tongues of scarlet
and scurried away,
leaving a mutilated corpse?
an infant dumped on a rubbish heap?
‘Oh! Baby in the Manger
on human dung.’
had melted into the rays of the rising sun,
her face glittering with innocence
her heart pure as untrampled dew.
