A Thirsty Throat

Ndaba Sibanda

Ndaba Sibanda

Won’t it die without a drink?

What about a dead beast’s stink?

Our land is gasping for great greenery

The one that was a cute castle of scenery

Is now a poor, petrifying, parched plainness

The rains forsook the farmers’ hopefulness

When they withdrew and played hide-and-seek

With their patient prayers which are purely meek

That’s why our land is lacking and drearily dehydrated

The crops cry dry dirges of drooping, none is exhilarated

Our motto is: ‘We stand for the truth, irrespective of who tells it’. Driven by this philosophy, our aim has been to create a platform where every voice, every narrative – provided they are decently expressed –  is allowed expression. Our belief is that by promoting unfettered competition of ideas, the truth will eventually emerge. Obviously, doing this while resisting any temptation to be captured by any special interest or tendency makes survival as an online newspaper more challenging. This is why we will appreciate any support from our readers:
