As things fall apart...

'Things fall apart
The centre cannot hold'

Hapless shoppers are attacked
As they shop and dine in malls
Inquiries are promised
But never began
Road users die daily
In myriad incidents
mis-named accidents
Insecurity abounds
From the leafless North
To the leafy suburbs
The cost of living
Goes through the roof
With new taxes and levies
In the midst of all this
The National Assembly
Suspends all other business
To discuss the important matter
Of who Should fly
The national flag
And which category of leaders
May use the title
'Your Excellency.'

'Things fall apart
The centre cannot hold.'
