Because sacrifice is something that should not be forgotten, this is a moment to remember Sharpeville and why we have Human Rights Day...
This poem is for those who left their homes
On that fateful morn
Only to return in a hearse
With a tag on their toes.
Who would’ve switched off the stove
And put on their shoes, had they known
Their deaths would make the news.
This is for those who would have read this poem
And still left their homes,
only to return in a hearse-
