EMPTY VESSELS MAKE THE MOST NOISE?

CACOPHONY:
Too late,
brakes screech, fender thumps;
another car hits the speedbump.

A boombox strolls by on shoulders;
make da circle beega!*
and the young guns sing along.

Hoot!Hoot!Hoot!
and the man, hot faced, shouting;
how long must I wait at the gate?

Midnight sirens
Hee!haw!hee!haw!
wailing protest; hier’s nog huismoles.*

Birds, disturbed, scream at dawn;
Haaaaaaaa!
A poet once said they were scared …
of flying …
not of us;
or our suburban symphony.

* make da circle beega – a current SA pop song ‘Make the circle bigger’.
* hier’s nog huismoles – here’s more domestic violence.

  1. Struggle fighters, young guns,
    No life skills to teach,
    spread the word about the lies,
    Next president, I think not.
